Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the bestselling author of Songs without Words and The Dive from Clausen's Pier, her strongest work yet — a collection of burnished, impossible-to-put down narratives framed by two stunning, linked novellas.

A wife struggles to make sense of her husband's sudden disappearance. A mother mourns her teenage son through the music collection he left behind. A woman shepherds her estranged parents through her brother's wedding and reflects on the year her family collapsed. A young man comes to grips with the joy — and vulnerability — of impending fatherhood. And, in the masterly opening novella, two teenagers from very different families — one a tightly knit foursome, the other a father and son who share little more than having been abandoned by the same woman — forge a sustaining friendship, only to discover the disruptive and unsettling power of sex.

Synopsis:

A volume of interlinked stories includes the tales of a wife who struggles to make sense of her husband's abrupt departure, a mother who mourns a teenage son through the music collection he left behind and a woman who reflects on her own broken family while attending a brother's wedding. (story collections).
