When two students are found dead in their small Florida hometown, an aging brother and sister are forced to confront their own dark past while on the hunt for a murderer
As a successful news photographer, Francis Brimm has lived a life of adventure, traveling the world and accumulating little baggage—either material or personal. Now nearing retirement, he has decided to move back to his Florida hometown, where his sister, Muriel, by her own admission, has led a much less fulfilling existence. As children of an alcoholic father and an icy, withholding mother, the siblings have found that the wounds of childhood remain well into adulthood. The scars of their past come into stark relief when Francis and Muriel find the bones of two children, both students of the nearby school for the blind. In the search for the killer, they are both forced to reexamine the long-ago trauma that shaped their lives.
Suspenseful and psychologically astute, School for the Blind is a masterwork of literary fiction by bestselling author Dennis McFarland.
