A new novel by Somerville author Andrew Krivák covers a lot of ground. War, religion, death, birth and redemption swirl around the sparse, sometimes desolate landscape that Krivák has created. His characters are all waiting for news of a younger son missing in action in the Vietnam War. The setting is a small Northeastern Pennsylvania town in 1972.

Andrew Krivák's new novel, "The Signal Flame," follows on his first novel, "The Sojourn."
