About this title


Families are fragile, vulnerable to both inside and outside forces, but especially in times of war.

Working to build a "sound house" during World War II, the McKinseys struggle against the tension of conflict on many levels: the family disagrees, the neighborhood threatens dangers, the nation suffers the terror of Pearl Harbor. At about the same time the family tapes black paper in the windows and waits inside the closet praying for safety, Lindy finds the deep woods filled with dark secrets.

A prize-winning novel, House on the Sound offers " . . . a sense of drama heightened by sculpted lines and language. Like all good fiction, and a lot of poetry, the pages are "haunted" by its earlier sounds and images so that a real tension is often created in the form of expectation."

About the Author:

The author of the recent The Wine-Dark Sea of Grass, a novel about the Mountain Meadows Massacre, is a recent winner of the 2001 Critics' Choice Award of the Publishers' House Awards. A past president of the Association for Mormon Letters, she also offers the bi-annual thousand dollar Marilyn Brown Novel Award.

Though she writes mostly about her home state of Utah, as a child she happened to be on the West Coast during the war, and "it was a time no one could ever forget."
