Description
Forced by illness to leave behind a successful life as a writer in New York, Flannery O’Connor has returned to her family farm in Milledgeville, Georgia, in this novel by the author of Within Arm's Reach. She desires a quiet existence, but her mother drags Flannery to the wedding of a family friend: the embodiment of southern womanhood, Cookie Himmel, who has returned from her time in Manhattan to marry the wealthy Melvin Whiteson. Lona Waters, a dutiful housewife, is hired by Cookie to help create a perfect home, but when she is given an opportunity to remember what it feels like to be truly alive, Lona seizes it with both hands. In the course of one tragic afternoon, these characters must examine the choices they have made and face up to O’Connor’s observation that "the truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it."

"With uncanny insight and perception, [Ann] Napolitano pierces the surface of her characters' lives, laying bare their deepest desires. Small-town life rarely gets this riveting and real. What a superb book."—Paula McLain
