Summary

Summary

 A Library Journal Best Audiobook of 2021

A moose walks into a rural Maine town called Oslo. Pierre Roy, a brilliant twelve-year-old, loses his memory in an accident. Three families are changed for worse and better as they grapple with trauma, marriage, ambition, and their fraught relationship with the natural world.

Oslo, Maine inspects the strengths and limitations of seven average yet extraordinary people as they reckon with their considerable collective failure around Pierre's accident. Alliances unravel. Long held secrets are exposed. And throughout, the ever-present moose is the linchpin that drives this richly drawn story, filled with heartbreak and hope, to its unexpected conclusion.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Butler pulls it off beautifully with a heart-rending story of small steps and big hopes.” Central Maine Morning Sentinel
“The flawed but deeply relatable characters in Butler's second novel exude an authentic sense of humanity, making this a sure-fire recommendation for Fredrik Backman fans." Booklist

Author Bio: Marcia Butler

Marcia Butler, a former professional oboist and interior designer, is a documentary film maker and author of the memoir The Skin above My Knee and debut novel, Pickle's Progress. With her second novel, Oslo, Maine, she draws on indelible memories of performing for fifteen years at a chamber music festival in central Maine. While there, she came to love the diverse topography, the earnest and quirky people, and especially the majestic and endlessly fascinating moose who roam, at their perpetual peril, among the humans.
