Synopsis:

In a small town in Canada, Clara Callan reluctantly takes leave of her sister, Nora, who is bound for New York. It's a time when the growing threat of fascism in Europe is a constant worry, and people escape from reality through radio and the movies. Meanwhile, the two sisters -- vastly different in personality, yet inextricably linked by a shared past -- try to find their places within the complex web of social expectations for young women in the 1930s.

While Nora embarks on a glamorous career as a radio-soap opera star, Clara, a strong and independent-minded woman, struggles to observe the traditional boundaries of a small and tight-knit community without relinquishing her dreams of love, freedom, and adventure. However, things aren't as simple as they appear -- Nora's letters eventually reveal life in the big city is less exotic than it seems, and the tranquil solitude of Clara's life is shattered by a series of unforeseeable events. These twists of fate require all of Clara's courage and strength, and finally put the seemingly unbreakable bond between the sisters to the test.


Review:
"[S]uperb....A wrenching chronicle of time passing and opportunity lost."

Kirkus, 08/01/2002

Review:
"CLARA CALLAN resembles an artefact from the shelves of some Canadian historical society, recounting a singularly poignant story about the depravity of human beings as well as their compassion and their amazing capacity to endure."

Ashley Brown, Times Literary Supplement, 09/27/2002
