In Wild Mountain, Mona Duval has concocted a tidy life for herself in the rural town of Wild Mountain, Vermont. Escaped (mostly) from a bad marriage, she runs a general store next to an historic covered bridge—a bridge she loves so much, she literally wrote the book on its history. When an ice storm collapses the century-old bridge, Mona’s life begins to unravel with it. Wild Mountain tells a tale of small-town politics and mountain lore. Above all, this book is about passion, whether it be for a land, a cause, a state, or a person. Follow an engaging cast of characters through a turning point in Wild Mountain’s history, as uncertain as the reader what lies ahead.
