Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The acclaimed author of Into the Forest mines our fears and explores our capacity to love in this epic tale of modern motherhood.

Young and pregnant, Cerise and Anna make very different decisions about how to direct their lives. While teenaged Cerise struggles to support herself and her young daughter, Anna finishes college, marries, and later gives birth to two daughters of her own. After the birth of her second child, a tragic accident tears Cerise's life apart, and she loses her already tenuous position in society. As the story progresses--and Cerise's and Anna's lives interweave and inexorably approach each other--both women are dramatically, forever changed. Unforgettable, awe-inspiring, and grippingly honest, Windfalls is a daring and mesmerizing tale.

Synopsis:

Young and pregnant, Cerise and Anna make two very different decisions about their lives as the author of "Into the Forest" explores the very essence and complexity of womanhood, and what it is to be a mother.
