Synopsis : ?Andrew Porter is a born storyteller . . . He makes his own space instantly and invites you in. Hats off!? ?Barry Hannah
From a commanding new voice in fiction comes a novel as perceptive as it is generous: a portrait of an American family trying to cope in our world today, a story of choices and doubts and transgressions.
The Hardings are teetering on the brink. Elson?once one of Houston?s most promising architects, who never quite lived up to expectations?is recently divorced from his wife of thirty years, Cadence. Their grown son, Richard, is still living at home: driving his mother?s minivan, working at a local coffee shop, resisting the career as a writer that beckons him. But when Chloe Harding gets kicked out of her East Coast college, for reasons she can?t explain to either her parents or her older brother, the Hardings? lives start to unravel. Chloe returns to Houston, but the dangers set in motion back at school prove inescapable. Told with piercing insight, taut psychological suspense, and the wisdom of a true master of character, this is a novel about the vagaries of love and family, about betrayal and forgiveness, about the possibility and impossibility of coming home.
"This is a beautifully written and immaculately observed portrait of what happens to the splinters of a broken family, and their shared concept of home. Terrific." ( The Times)
"Compelling, perceptive." (David Evans Financial Times)
"Andrew Porter?s poised study of the meaning of love, family and home has a meatier, more suspenseful plot than you?d anticipate." (Hephzibah Anderson Daily Mail)
