"It's clear to me that Courtney Elizabeth Mauk is going to be an important new voice of her generation."—Dan Chaon, author of Await Your Reply and Stay Awake

A postcard arrives straight out of her past, forcing Carrie to confront her commune upbringing alongside Amelia, the almost-sister she worshipped and lost. Desperate to keep her daughter close as her marriage disintegrates, Carrie must come to understand how the choices made by a well-meaning but misguided community have defined her life since, and threaten to forever.
