'Achingly beautiful. a first-love story so well remembered and honest that it reminds you what falling in love feels like.' - Time magazineWrapped in the landscape of a blustery Wisconsin winter, Blankets explores the sibling rivalry of two brothers growing up in rural isolation, and the budding romance of two young lovers. A tale of security and discovery, of playfulness and tragedy, of a fall from grace and the origins of faith, Blankets is a profound and utterly beautiful work.
