(From the publisher):
The Mountain and the Valley
is an affectionate portrait of David Canaan, a sensitive boy who becomes increasingly aware of the difference that sets him apart from his family and his neighbours. Davidís desire to write is the secret that gives this haunting story its detailed focus and its poignant theme.
Set in the years leading up to World War II and against the backdrop of the Annapolis Valleyís natural beauty, The Mountain and the Valley captures a young manís spiritual awakening and the gradual growth of artistic vision.
