Rich with menace, this novel unfolds in a world where darkness intrudes into bright and pleasant places, a world with betrayal at its heart. In shimmering prose Martin raises the question, Who shall inherit America?
Annotation:
Chloe and her husband's tranquil life is undermined when their son Toby brings his girlfriend, a Croatian refuge, home from college. The darkly beautiful girl with her traumatic past seems ominous to Chloe, a feeling exacerbated by the Middle Eastern poacher who has been hunting rabbits on their property. Valerie Martin excels at vividly exposing the flaws of human behavior, making her characters simultaneously repellant and compellingly human.

Praise

"A coolly dispassionate storyteller with a narrative voice that is at once inviting and disquieting." 07/07/2007

"A brilliant must-read from Martin, who captures the zeitgeist of contemporary America within a deeply personal context." (starred review) 07/15/2007

"[Valerie] Martin's novel is the best kind of moral fiction, the kind that interrogates morality itself....[She] deserves a wider audience." - Sue Halpern 09/16/2007

"This clever, complex, and emotionally rich novel is written in simple but dense prose that is always readable. Relentlessly honest, sympathetic yet starkly clear-sighted, Valerie Martin leaves you with an unsettling awareness of outrage and a sense of a having read a story that will continue to unfold long after you have put the book down." - Carol Birch 10/12/2007
