In this emotionally charged novel, Rendell (The House on Mango Street, Beloved) tells the story of a mother and daughter over the course of four decades. Set in a small town in North Carolina, the story follows the struggles of the family as they weather the storms of life—the death of a mother, the breakup of a marriage, the births and departures of children. Yet despite the hardships, the mother and daughter remain close, sharing secrets and telling each other's stories in long, intimate conversations. Rendell's writing is powerful and evocative, capturing the immediacy and intimacy of family life.; 8vo; Signed by Author.
