Synopses & Reviews
The eagerly-anticipated second novel from the author of the national bestseller Broken for You is a deeply moving portrait of three grown siblings who have lived in the shadow of grief since their mothers ascent into a tornado when they were children.
"Kallos's second novel tells the story of the three Jones children, Larken, Gaelen and Bonnie, as they try to come to terms with their mother's mysterious death after she is swallowed up by a tornado that touched down in their small town in Nebraska. The children must live their life under the microscope of the townspeople's collective interest while trying to create their own life and legacy and distance themselves from their mother's death. Tavia Gilbert brings additional vibrancy to Kallos's original and affecting novel. Gilbert manages to capture the underlying melancholy of the novel while creating complex and believable characters. With a compelling stage presence, she brings this story to life with an inspired reading that demonstrates her performance ability and creative sensibility.
