    Sinopse

    FINALIST FOR THE OREGON BOOK AWARDS—KEN KESEY AWARD FOR FICTION **  “Intimate, vibrant, and richly colored.”—Portland Monthly “[An] extraordinary feat of storytelling . . . A spellbinding novel as tough as it is beautiful.” — Helen Simonson, author of The Summer Before the War   “A beautifully spun tale . . . An astonishing alchemy of history, romance, and fable.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review**   Maris was born knowing things: his very large, very special ears enable him to hear the secrets of the dead, as well as the memories that haunt his Latvian hometown. As a boy, Maris finds himself heir to an odd assortment of hidden letters, letters from which he would weave a story that could finally expose—and maybe even patch—the holes in the fabric of his family and their town. With humor, heart, and her characteristic “luminous writing [and] affection for her characters” (New York Times), Gina Ochsner creates an intimate, hopeful portrait of a fascinating town in all its complications and charm. From the onset of World War II through the cold shock of independence, we see how, despite years of distrust, a community can come through love and loss to the joy of understanding.   “A captivating novel of secrets, love, and memory . . . This terrific novel knocked me out.” —Janet Fitch, author of Paint It Black   “A gift on par with Joanne Harris’s Chocolat . . . Quirky, ethereal, hilarious, and sorrowful.” —Shelf Awareness
