"Chessman paints word pictures bathed in light and color."—Boston Globe

"Powerful...One of the best books of the year." —San Francisco Chronicle

While Hannah Pearl increasingly inhabits the world of her ardent and frightened youth in war-torn France and England, the memory of her more recent American life with her daughter and granddaughters is almost erased.  

Harriet Scott Chessman’s masterful and compassionate third novel is a series of interlinked stories in which each character must negotiate the fraught intricacies of memory, geography, and motherhood. And it is finally the reader who discovers and illuminates, with miraculous effect, all the pieces of this intelligent and dream-like puzzle.
