    An intricate tale of love, haunting memories, and renewal, Second Glance begins in current-day Vermont, where an old man puts a piece of land up for sale and unintentionally raises protest from the local Abenaki Indian tribe, who insist it's a burial ground. When odd, supernatural events plague the town of Comtosook, a ghost hunter is hired by the developer to help convince the residents that there's nothing spiritual about the property.

    "historically informative novel"
    Overall

    I found the multiple story lines very well entwined as the impact of eugenics on our underprivileged and minorities was addressed from the characters' viewpoints. I really knew very little of this movement and have been appalled to find out it was still in practice up into the 1970s! In fact there was something in the news two days ago about sterilized persons in NC possibly being paid back by the state.
    There is a touch of magic in the story as well with the love stories. Its mysteriousness will keep you guessing at what will be happening next. If you like learning about historical events as well as watching love stories and families evolve it will be very satisfying to you.
