Synopsis: The moving story of a father who dies young and the family he leaves behind
Even in a small town people have secrets, including how much they really mean to each other. In Alison McGhee?s haunting debut, a tragic event sparks revelations from nine-year-old Mallie, her mother, her grandfather, a waitress, and Mallie?s father?s ex-lover. They discover long-hidden truths and forge new bonds in this unforgettable, heartbreaking novel about parents, children, and love.
