Wild Mountain* a novel of Vermont

“Kilgore weaves a tight tale about the complications of a community at odds….Wild Mountain is a quiet, beautiful novel full of sensuous descriptions of rural Vermont and the lives of those who reside there….The book’s central problem—our inability to communicate and understand—is what makes this book’s central message so relevant today.”  —Lambda Literary.org

Sea Level* a novel of spiritual search

“vibrant…evocative…treads the same territory as Alice Munro.” – Margot Harrison, Seven Days

Sea Level brings to life the tensions that inevitably arise when a new minister is taken on by a congregation mired in its traditions and uncertain whether it wants leadership or obedience.”                                                                                         – C. Michael Curtis, Fiction Editor, The Atlantic
