Raymond Strom’s debut novel takes place in a teeny tiny town called Holm, Minnesota. As desperately as I’ve tried, I cannot for the life of me find this town on a map. Even Googling the town leads me to people with the last name Holm. So maybe Holm is very, very tiny or doesn’t exist. Either way, I know a little about living in a small town, since Alexandria isn’t quite as big as the cities. But it’s still a wonderful place to live.
