Homer Aldrich Winthrop was a neurologist who died of a neurological illness. That's all Homer Jr.'s mother will say about his father, who died when he was 2, and any prodding for details results in silence,evasion, or sudden migraine headaches. So by age 12, Homer's given up asking.But on an unexpected trip to Maine, Homer finds himself in a place where his father had lived. In this one coastal village there must be millions of facts about his father. Now Homer must face his biggest fear--maybe there's a reason his father is such a secret. Maybe there are things he really doesn't want to know.Still, Maine gives him courage. There's something about the people he meets and the breadth of the sky that convince Homer to search for the truth--to solve the mystery of his own life. From the Hardcover edition.
