Torch by Cheryl Strayed

TorchCancer. The book begins with this diagnosis and the unraveling of life, family, and relationships begin.
All this takes place primarily in a small rural town where there is little else than drugs, sex, and new relationships to distract from one’s sorrows.

There is a heartrending quality to the plot. I wanted to reach out, into the book and pull people back on track.

Grief is like that.
