Toby Jenkins, the oldest surviving member of her family, has opened a summer residence program in the Nebraska Sandhills for the wounded and broken, misfits and dreamers. Besides her guests--a minister on sabbatical and a woman recovering from cancer treatment--Toby is joined by Anita and Luís, her hired help; Anita's brother Gabe; and someone Toby least expected, her nearly estranged daughter, Nola Jean. Mother-daughter tensions, age-old prejudices, and generational divides challenge the members of this disparate community as they bump up against each other. Parallel conflicts occur against the backdrop of a changing rural landscape where history clashes with evolving mores. In this thoughtful and moving novel Pamela Carter Joern probes the complications of family relationships, identity, belonging, and the impact of long-held secrets.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Pamela Carter JoernPublisher: University of Nebraska PressPublished: 03/01/2023ISBN: 9781496232694Pages: 232Weight: 0.65lbsSize: 8.19h x 5.20w x 0.16d
