In the winter of 2012, seventy-nine year old Somerset Garden travels back to his ancestral home in idyllic Drums, PA, to renovate his dilapidated house, and make peace with the past.

While a blizzard barrels down from the north and "Armageddon" draws closer, Somerset discovers a boy squatting on the property, a ghostly boy who forces him to confront his memories.

Will Somerset complete his winter project? Is the boy a ghost, the angel of death, or a hallucination triggered by his grief? Will Somerset have the courage to confront the role he played in his son's disappearance thirty years before?

Part elegy, part history, part existential ghost tale, The Stove-Junker is a harrowing, lyrical meditation on loss, heartbreak, and the power of memory.

"This is a deep book, it will trouble you after you have read it. It is not a superficial bit of entertainment. If you want momentary diversion, read something else." Nanette Tradeux.
