What We Harvest

Ann Fraistat — 2022
For fans of Wilder Girls comes a nightmarish debut guaranteed to keep you up through the night, about an idyllic small town poisoned by its past, and one girl who must fight the strange disease that's slowly claiming everyone she loves. Wren owes everything she has to her home, Hollow's End, a centuries-old, picture perfect American town. Tourists travel miles to marvel at its miracle crops, including the shimmering, iridescent wheat of Wren's family farm. Until five months ago. That's when the quicksilver mercury blight first surfaced, poisoning the farms of Hollow's End one by one. It began by consuming the crops--thick, silver sludge bleeding from the earth. Next were the animals. Infected livestock and wild creatures alike staggered off into the woods by day--only to return at night, their eyes, fogged white, leering from the trees. Then, the blight came for the neighbors. Wren is among the last locals standing. And the blight has finally come for her, too. Now, the only one she can turn to is the last person she wants to call: her ex, Derek. They haven't spoken in months, but Wren and Derek still have one thing in common--Hollow's End means everything to them. Only there's much they don't know about their hometown and its renowned miracle crops. And they're about to discover that miracles aren't free. Their ancestors have an awful lot to pay for, and Wren and Derek are the only ones left to settle old debts.
