When high school senior Paul
Wagoner walks into his school library with a stolen gun, he threatens his girlfriend
Emily Beam, then takes his own life. In the wake of the tragedy, an angry and
guilt-ridden Emily is shipped off to boarding school in Amherst, Massachusetts,
where she encounters a ghostly presence who shares her name. The spirit of
Emily Dickinson and two quirky girls offer helping hands, but it is up to Emily
to heal her own damaged self.
This inventive story, told in
verse and in prose, paints the aftermath of tragedy as a landscape where there
is good behind the bad, hope inside the despair, and springtime under the snow. Download and start listening now!
