Have you ever kept a secret for a friend? A secret that you couldn't tell a single person? A secret that gnawed and consumed your mind? A secret that robbed you of sleep? It might be something wonderful or awful, something neither good nor ill. It might be rather strange. No matter what it is, a secret craves freedom, but it mustn't escape. It must be kept.
Everyone has kept a secret, but few have kept one like Sam Gylkov's.
Sam, a farmer from southern Michigan, has a secret he can no longer bear, which he will soon entrust to a friend. It is at the same time wonderful and horrible and dizzying.
And after hearing it, no one will ever be the same.
