The Housekeeper Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Both a poetic mediation on landscape and a page-turning thriller, The Housekeeper is the story of teenage runaway Jamie Hall, who finds herself trapped in a town and among its locals, unable to shake the relentless grip of her past. When she encounters a feral young boy and unties him from a tree, she unwittingly instigates a fatal chase that will haunt her for the rest of her life.

Synopsis:

Izzy's eccentric, complicated mother committed suicide on her forty-first birthday. Now, on the night before Izzy herself is to turn forty-one, she struggles with the realization that she will be older than her mother ever was. And to make matters worse, her widowed father, unstable sister, Ellie, and precocious niece have decided to accompany her to Colorado for what promises to be an emotionally charged weekend. As Izzy is flooded with memories from her past and wonders about her future, she must face a choice that could break her family apart.
