The Undertow (Hardcover)
|Author: Jo Baker|
|The American debut of an enthralling new voice in fiction: a vivid, indelibly told novel that follows four generations of a family against the backdrop of a tumultuous century--a novel about inheritance, about fate and passion, and about what it means to truly break free of the past.|
From the Publisher:
"A novel about four generations of a British family--their secrets, their loves and losses, dreams and heartbreaks--captured in a series of individual moments that span the years from World War I, to World War II, to the 1960s, and up to the present"--Provided by publisher.
"Immediate, poignant and rarely predictable, this searchingly observant work captures a huge terrain of personal aspiration against a shifting historical and social background." (starred review) 04/15/2012
