Publisher Comments:

Nora Silk doesnt really fit in on Hemlock Street, where every house looks the same. She's divorced. She wears a charm bracelet and high heels and red toreador pants. And the way she raises her kids is a scandal. But as time passes, the neighbors start having second thoughts about Nora. The womens apprehension evolves into admiration. The mens lust evolves into awe. The children are drawn to her in ways they can't explain. And everyone on this little street in 1959 Long Island seems to sense the possibilities and perils of a different kind of future when they look at Nora Silk...This extraordinary novel by the author of The River King and Local Girls takes us back to a time when the exotic both terrified and intrigued us, and despite our most desperate attempts, our passions and secrets remained as stubbornly alive as the weeds in our well-trimmed lawns. 

Synopsis:

In the late 1950s, when Nora Silk moves into Hemlock Street, the entire neighborhood sucks in its breath. A divorcée who wears Toreador pants and lets her kids eat sweets before school, Nora is a walking scandal. But when the block's husbands, wives, and children get to know her, they begin to see other things in Nora--and this Long Island town won't ever be the same...
