Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is 1992, and the Lowe family is living in a centuries-old castle in Prague. Alden Lowe works at the Czech Ministry of Finance and his wife Becky advises women entrepreneurs. With their daugher Julie, they appear a fortunate American family, but after twenty years with Alden, Becky shocks the family by fleeing to Libya, where she intends to reunite with a man who has loved her since before her marriage.

In its tale of Americans living abroad and the social reconfigurations that ensue, the captivating A Way from Home is reminiscent of the novels of Edith Wharton and Henry James--with a delicious satiric tang all its own.

Synopsis:

In 1992 Prague, the Lowe family--Alden, working at the Ministry of Finance; his disaffected wife, Becky; and their precocious daughter, Julie, who is pursuing her father's assistant--begins to self-destruct, especially after Becky flees to Libya, where she is reunited with the man she has loved for years. Reprint. 10,000 first printing.

Synopsis:

Nancy Clark lives in West Wilton, New Hampshire, where she is at work on her third novel, July and August.
