Who are these two figures in the undergrowth? Why are they there? How mysterious they look as they blend into the landscape. Vincent Van Gogh does not provide clues to either question in this painting which graces the cover of JOURNAL OF EVA MORELLI by Maryann D’Agincourt. A work of literary fiction, the novel is about three people rummaging through the undergrowth of their lives. Set in a quiet seaside community in New Hampshire a decade removed from September 11, all seems tranquil and predictable to Stephen Forester and his wife Brea. That is until the elusive Eva Hathaway steps into Stephen’s office and begins to reveal the story of her own tragic past; his convictions start to crumble. Over the sweltering summer that follows, Stephen becomes more and more haunted by obscure memories of his childhood as he wonders what secret could be so terrible that Eva can only reveal it in her journal.
