Local Knowledge - Liza Gyllenhaal This was an interesting story with many twists. The story of the life of one couple in a small town in New England which delves into the past and present and their interaction with others in their lives. The husband's best friend always seemed to be on the verge of coming between them. I had a hard time relating to any of the characters which I think is why I didn't enjoy this one more. I wouldn't call it boring, just different. I am anxious to see what others think about this one.
