The Grim Reader

by Lorie Lewis Ham

Rare book restorer Brooklyn Wainwright and her husband Derek are delighted to be back in her hometown of Dharma, California, for their first annual Dharma Book Festival. As much as they love living in San Francisco, it can’t compare to the communal warmth of the tourist-friendly wine country near Sonoma County. In addition to the variety of restaurants and craft shops run by Brooklyn’s numerous siblings in the wine country, her British in-laws have also recently purchased a second home in the town where Derek’s tarot-reading mother flourishes.
