Synopsis

One cold morning in the middle of nowhere, a young man struggles to finish the fence he's building for his disapproving father. Nobody asked his neighbor, but wheezy old Ray joins him anyway.

A story of recovery, family, and redemption; but not necessarily in that order....

"Jasper’s writing is full of vivid descriptions of the struggle of digging fenceposts, the chain-smoking neighbor with emphysema, and Canton’s own internal struggles." — Greensboro News & Record
