From David Guterson--bestselling author of Snow Falling on Cedars --comes this emotionally charged, provocative novel about what happens when a fifteen-year-old girl becomes an instrument of divine grace.

Ann Holmes is a fragile, pill-popping teenaged runaway who receives a visitation from the Virgin Mary one morning while picking mushrooms in the woods of North Fork, Washington. In the ensuing days the miracle recurs, and the declining logging town becomes the site of a pilgrimage of the faithful and desperate. As these people flock to Ann--and as Ann herself is drawn more deeply into what is either holiness or madness-- Our Lady of the Forest --seamlessly splices the miraculous and the mundane.

What a superb legend Guterson has created here. As earthy and realistic as it is, this novel "rocks" in ghostlier ways. I read it more than 10 years ago in fogbound northern California, as close as I could get to this book's sunless stomping grounds. By now an avid Guterson fan, I'm ready to reread it. Try it, you'll like it!
