A New York Times Bestselling Author

Autumn, 1918: Rumors of peace are spreading across America, but not as fast as Spanish influenza. Maureen Ross, well past a safe childbearing age, is experiencing a difficult pregnancy. Her husband, Troop - cold and careless of her condition - has battered her spirit throughout their marriage. Into this loveless menage comes Troop's niece to help in Maureen's last weeks of confinement. Horrified by Troop's bullying, she realizes that her true duty is to protect her aunt.

About the Author:

Kaye Gibbons is the author of six previous novels, including Ellen Foster and, most recently, On the Occasion of My Last Afternoon.

From AudioFile:

Gibbons reads her seventh novel with a graceful, hypnotic rhythm reminiscent of its North Carolina setting. Her painful story, however, is anything but hypnotic--it seethes with volcanic intensity. In autumn, 1918, at the emotionally strangling confluence of a flu epidemic and rumors of imminent peace, Maureen Ross makes two important discoveries: She is married to an emotionally frozen tyrant, and she is pregnant with his child. When her 22-year-old niece, Mary, comes to her rescue, Troop Ross appears bent on ripping apart any sense his wife has of her own worth. Can Mary's youthful fire spark renewed self-esteem in her aunt, or is it too late? Gibbons's wise restraint as a reader in some sense prepares us for the novel's ultimate explosion.
