9781455861347: Clair de Lune: A Novel

“Complex and daring. . . . One of those books that readers wish had a sequel.” ― Jane Smiley on Jetta Carleton’s The Moonflower Vine The time: 1941, at the cusp of America’s entry into World War II. The place: southwest Missouri, on the edge of the Ozark Mountains. A young single woman named Allen Liles has taken a job as a junior college teacher in a small town, although she dreams of living in New York City, of dancing at recitals, of absorbing the bohemian delights of the Village. Then she encounters two young men: George, a lanky, carefree spirit, and Toby, a dark-haired, searching soul with a wary look in his eyes. Soon the three strike up an after-school friendship, bantering and debating over letters, ethics, and philosophy―innocently at first, but soon in giddy flirtation―until Allen and one of the young men push things too far, and the quiet happiness she has struggled so hard to discover is thrown into jeopardy. Praise for The Moonflower Vine “[Carleton] captures both the beauty of the natural world and the complexities of human emotion.” ― Washington Post “A distinguished achievement.” ― Chicago Tribune “A profoundly satisfying book.” ― New York Herald Tribune
