Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
While under the care of Alice Goodwin, a neighbor's child drowns in the Goodwins' pond, a devastating accident that has profound repercussions for the entire Goodwin family, in a story set in a small Midwestern farm town.

Review:
"Brilliant, unforgettable story about friendship, loyalty, guilt, and forgiveness--and the vicious power of the mob to destroy innocent lives."

Good Book Guide, 02/1996

Review:
"Like Sue Miller's GOOD MOTHER and Rosellen Brown's BEFORE AND AFTER, this new novel by Jane Hamilton aspires to combine a melodramatic soap-opera plot with highly tuned literary writing, the pacing of a thriller with the psychological detail of a Bildungsroman....[t]he results are something of a mixed bag: bizarrely clumsy and contrived scenes combined with highly moving moments of exceptional emotional clarity, and a motley cast of characters, ranging from the stereotyped to the dexterously well drawn....[The] difficulties are, to some degree, offset by the strengths of Ms. Hamilton's writing: her eye for the emotional detail, her expert manipulation of point of view, her ability to show us Alice's fears and delusions, her need for penance and her yearning for redemption. The reader only hopes that Ms. Hamilton's next book will better showcase her considerable gifts."

Michiko Kakutani, New York Times, 06/28/1994

Book Description: Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 1999. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Anchor Books. 178 x 121 mm. Brand New Book. From the author of the widely acclaimed The Book of Ruth comes a harrowing, heartbreaking drama about a rural American family and a disastrous event that forever changes their lives. The Goodwins, Howard, Alice, and their little girls, Emma and Claire, live on a dairy farm in Wisconsin. Although suspiciously regarded by their neighbors as that hippie couple because of their well-educated, urban background, Howard and Alice believe they have found a source of emotional strength in the farm, he tending the barn while Alice works as a nurse in the local elementary school. But their peaceful life is shattered one day when a neighbor s two-year-old daughter drowns in the Goodwins pond while under Alice s care. Tormented by the accident, Alice descends even further into darkness when she is accused of sexually abusing of a student at the elementary school. Soon, Alice is arrested, incarcerated, and as good as convicted in the eyes of a suspicious community. As a child, Alice designed her own map of the world to find her bearings. Now, as an adult, she must find her way again, through a maze of lies, doubt and ill will. A vivid human drama of guilt and betrayal, A Map of the World chronicles the intricate geographies of the human heart and all its mysterious, uncharted terrain. The result is a piercing drama about family bonds and a disappearing rural American life. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780385720106
