Birch Street, Holt County, Colorado, USA

Almost all of the novel's action takes place on Birch Street in Holt County. Between Addie's house and Louis' house lies Ruth's house. With these three characters living on the same street, the only time that the story ventures away from Birch Street is during the few trips that Louis and Addie take. Holt County is a small town with few residents, who all know the business of one another. As such, news of the relationship between Addie and Louis spreads like wildfire.
