The Preservationist


A page-turning psychological thriller from the “talentedyoung” author of Finny (Boston Globe)

To Sam Blount, meeting Julia is the best thing that has everhappened to him.

Working at the local college and unsuccessful in hisprevious relationships, he’d been feeling troubled about his approachingfortieth birthday, “a great beast of a birthday,” as he sees it, but being withJulia makes him feel young and hopeful. Julia Stilwell, a freshman trying tocome to terms with a recent tragedy that has stripped her of her greatesttalent, is flattered by Sam’s attention. But their relationship is tested by ashy young man with a secret, Marcus Broley, who is also infatuated with Julia.

Told in alternating points of view, The Preservationist is the riveting tale of Julia and Sam’srelationship, which begins to unravel as the threat of violence approaches andJulia becomes less and less sure whom she can trust.
