Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is 1876, the year of the Centennial in Philadelphia and Katherine has recently lost her twin sister Anna in a tragic skating acci­dent. The loss haunts and threatens to suffocate her, and one wickedly hot September day, Katherine sets out for the exhibition grounds to end the life she no longer wants to live. But Katherine's not as alone as she thinks, and a surprise encounter may just save her from her own tragic end. Filled with vivid detail and exquisite writing that artfully brings the past to life, National Book Award nominee Beth Kepart's Dangerous Neighbors is a timeless and finely crafted novel about betrayal and guilt, hope and despair, love, loss, and new begin­nings.
