David Payne. Early from the Dance. New York: Doubleday, 2003.

Adam Jenrette, a successful artist in New York, has just suffered a breakdown and returned home to Killdeer, N.C., a fictional town on the Outer Banks. Things there don’t exactly get any easier. Adam runs into Jane McRae, with whom he had spent a memorable summer when they were both eighteen. Adam and Jane find that they are still emotional about the suicide of a common friend from Killdeer. Together they reminisce about that long-ago summer and reflect on how choices they made then have echoed throughout their lives.
