Summary (From the publisher):

Eva, a divorced and happily remarried mother of three, runs a small bookstore in a town north of San Francisco. When her second husband, John, is killed in a car accident, her family's fragile peace is once again overtaken by loss. For Daisy, the middle child, John's absence opens up a world of bewilderment, exposing her at the onset of adolescence to the chaos and instability that hover just beyond the safety of parental love, and to the powerlessness of that love to protect or even to console. In her sorrow, Daisy embarks on a harrowing sexual odyssey with a much older man, a journey that will cast her even further out onto the harsh promontory of adulthood and lost hope.

Blurbs:
  • "Sue Miller has a uniquely American voice, and few women have ever written better about families...Daisy's descent...is so harrowing that I literally had to put the book aside on a couple of occasions. You can call it family drama if you want to; the proper name for this stuff is probably nitro." Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly
  • "Whether...relationships are made up of romantic attachments or the bonds that connect parents and children, Miller knows exactly how to corral their turbulent emotions and complex revelations into a fluid, compelling story of everyday life...Quietly accomplished." Chicago Sun-Times
  • "Miller at her best: engrossing characters and a plot that turns unexpected corners." Kirkus Reviews
  • "If at first Miller's new novel seems to revisit an overly familiar story, she quickly offers proof that it will be in her own distinctive style, that it will, in fact, be one of her strongest, most satisfying books." The New York Times Book Review
