The story centers around a woman named Kai Richter. When her telepathy spirals out of control, her husband  Oliver takes her from Manhattan to the Wisconsin hometown he abandoned – where the secrets of his past are buried but refuse to stay dead. An emotionally powerful debut, “The Six Train to Wisconsin” pushes the bounds of love.
