Product Description

The story of Ruth and her younger sister, Lucille, who grow up haphazardly, first under the care of their competent grandmother, then of two comically bumbling great-aunts, and finally of Sylvie, their eccentric and remote aunt. The family house is in the small Far West town of Fingerbone, which is set on a glacial lake, the same lake where their grandfather died in a spectacular train wreck and their mother drove off a cliff to her death. Ruth and Lucille's struggletoward adulthood beautifully illuminates the price of loss and survival, and the dangerous and deep undertow of transience. Winner of the PEN/Hemingway Award. From the author of 'Gilead.' 219p.
