Driving home at dusk, Claire Andrews, an art history professor at a prestigious New England university, accidentally strikes and kills a boy who darts into the path of her car. She is immediately cleared of blame but is nonetheless left psychologically devastated. Haunted by the accident's consequences, Claire also wrestles with her study of one of Vincent van Gogh's final paintings, Crows over the Wheatfield, and its mysterious relationship to the great artist's untimely death.

Claire has been writing the definitive book on the connection between the artist's late paintings and his deteriorating mental condition before his suicide. She has uncovered evidence that the painter's death may not have been as it seems and that someone close to van Gogh may have pushed the fragile painter to take his own life. Meanwhile, Claire, too, begins to feel that she is being broken by despair. And when the boy's family files a high-profile lawsuit against Claire, even her work may not be able to pull her out of the darkness that has begun to envelop her.

On the advice of her lawyers and her husband, Richard, from whom she has recently separated but who has been caring for her, Claire sets off on a research trip to Auvers, France, where van Gogh spent his last days, determined to answer her questions about the artist and his masterpiece. While in Auvers, worrisome parallels between her life and that of the troubled painter begin to emerge, and Claire realizes that she must reconcile herself to her past in order to reunite the forces that make her whole.

Adam Braver, one of our finest young novelists, beautifully juxtaposes past and present in this remarkable story of art, tragedy, and redemption.

In Adam Beaver’s novel of tragedy and depression, Crows over the Wheatfield, Claire Andrews is an art professor at a university in Rhode Island, specializing in the work of Vincent van Gogh. One day while driving home in traffic she accidently hits and kills a boy. This event has a devastating effect on her and she calls on her estranged husband, Richard, for support, which he renders. The family of the boy files a suit against her and she goes to France to where van Gogh lived and painted one of his last paintings, Crows over the Wheatfields. There she discovers that certain paintings are actually fakes and she has to decide whether to include this information in the book she is writing. Throughout the novel Beaver inserts snippets from van Gogh’s life and especially his depression, which led to him shooting himself in the very wheatfields that he painted. After some time in France Claire returns to face the consequences of her act. She then has to decide whether to accept an offer by the family of the boy to apologize in return for dropping the case and whether to reveal the forgeries in her book despite having promised not to.

People who are interested in van Gogh and related painters or how to deal with personal tragedies in one’s life may well find this novel to be interesting, as will those who are interested in legal issues such as this one. Personally, I found the story to be dull and depressing although the ending does make one think about how to make moral and personal decisions.
