Recommended Reading: "Enon" by Paul Harding.

Paul Harding's novel Enon is about the spiral of grief that ensnares a father after the accidental death of his 13-year old daughter.  Over the course of a year this father, Charlie Crosby, drops out of day-to-day living and into addiction to pain killers and reflection on his lost daughter and life in his small New England town.

Enon does what a good novel can do: tell an interesting story that illuminates a shared human experience. In this case it is the experience of loss, grief, and recovery. And this is a good story. Check out Enon.
