Description

Tracing three generations of a Southern Jewish family, this remarkable debut novel peers into deeply rooted family secrets, explores the complex love between sisters, and celebrates the constant human struggle to keep one's history alive. Set in the Carolinas, it tells the stories of three sets of sisters, each of whom shares a delicate closeness that is shattered by secrets and truths, by matters of faith, and by long-held resentments. This beautifully rendered novel raises penetrating questions about filial love, marriage, and belonging.
