Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A mesmerizing novel of four generations of Southwestern women bound to a mythical legacy

With its family secrets and hallowed texts containing explosive truths, The Night Journal suggests A. S. Byatt’s Possession transplanted to the raw and beautiful landscape of the American Southwest. Meg Mabry has spent her life oppressed by her family’s legacy—a heritage beginning with the journals written by her great-grandmother in the 1890s and solidified by her grandmother Bassie, a famous historian who published them to great acclaim. Until now, Meg has stubbornly refused to read the journals. But when she concedes to accompany the elderly and vipertongued Bassie on a return trip to the fabled land of her childhood in New Mexico, Meg finally succumbs to the allure of her great-grandmother’s story—and soon everything she believed about her family is turned upside down.

Synopsis:

Meg Mabry has spent her life with her back turned to her legendary family legacy. When an unexpected discovery casts doubt on the history recorded by her great-grandmother, Meg succumbs to the allure of the family stories in order to unlock an old mystery.
