Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Carrington MacDuffie brings Baker's sprawling debut title to life with a thorough attention to detail and excellent ability to convey the rustic local color of rural upstate New York without falling into stock caricatures. Protagonist Truly Plaice — whose size and stature isolate her from daily social life in the provincial community — never loses her grit and determination in spite of all the heartache she endures. MacDuffie's talent shines in her portrayal of Truly's childhood friend Amelia Dyerson, whose mute interactions with the outside world belie her scrappy survival skills and emotional depth. MacDuffie also brings skill and insight to the male figures, particularly Truly's menacing brother-in-law, Doctor 'Bob-Bob' Morgan. The transitions make for a sometimes challenging listening experience, but MacDuffie does justice to the ambitious project. A Grand Central hardcover (Reviews, Sept. 8). (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Since she was born, Truly has suffered constant abuse and humiliation for her enormous size, while her beautiful, feminine sister, Serena Jane, has been pampered and admired. But when Serena Janes beauty attracts a ruthless suitor with a witch in the family, both their destinies change forever.
