In Timothy Schaffert's debut novel, two sisters on the cusp of womanhood struggle to understand their father's suicide as well as their mother's abandoment of them many years ago. Lily and Mabel live on their own in their grandmother's antique shop in rural Nebraska. They're bound by their loyalty to each other and their haunting urgency to reconcile their own versions of the past so that they might build their futures together. In what she intends to be a rebellious, even wild, choice, Lily steals a car with her boyfriend and heads southwest, to an Arizona vineyard to confront her mother. But Mabel stays behind, seeking to commune somehow with her father's ghost and finding comfort from a young man whose family is grieving the death of a sister. In a story that rises out of the spare Nebraska landscape, Schaffert delivers a textured, eccentric and redemptive tale about two young women searching for wholeness and love. 228 pages. The ffep was glued in one spot to the inside front cover and there is a small tear where they were separated. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
