Description
Here is an exceptionally engaging first novel from a commanding new voice in fiction, author of the award-winning and widely acclaimed story collection The Theory of Light and Matter. The Harding family is teetering on the brink. Elson--once one of Houston's most promising architects, but who never quite lived up to expectations--is recently divorced from his wife of thirty years. Their grown son Richard is still living at home, driving his mother's minivan, working at a local coffee shop, and resisting the career as a writer that beckons him. And when Chloe Harding gets kicked out of her East Coast college for reasons she can't explain to either her parents or her older brother, the Hardings' lives really start to unravel. Chloe returns to Houston, but she may be in greater danger than ever before. Told with piercing insight, taut psychological suspense, and the wisdom of a true master of character, this is a novel about the vagaries of love and family, about betrayal and forgiveness, about the possibility and impossibility of coming home.
