About the Book

It is the 1950s when David Moore and Anna Kixmiller are teenagers living in the small town of Mapleton, Indiana. In a community where the people are friendly, power struggles, secret love, illegal practices, and relationships of convenience lurk behind the broad smiles and warm handshakes found on a Sunday morning in church. There is no question that childhood sweethearts David and Anna are suffering within the unhealthy culture and eventually leave Mapleton behind to pursue a new life together, swearing they will never return.

Almost forty years later, David and Anna make the agonizing decision, with help from Anna’s psychiatrist, to move back to historic Mapleton with the hope of healing Anna’s troubled mind and spirit. But as they drive down the main street of their hometown, the couple is immediately propelled back into their memories, unpleasant as they may be. Now Anna must come to grips with unsavory events from her past before she and David can ever move forward and find happiness again.

Mapleton is a riveting tale of intrigue and mystery as a retired couple returns to their rural hometown to find hope, inspiration, and redemption.
