Franny is the youngest of three daughters of Peg and Brick Wahl, and at 13, she is just beginning to see her family, and the world--it is the beginning of the 1960s--as they truly exist. ROWING IN EDEN tells the story, through Franny's eyes, of one hard-drinking, music-filled, contentious summer at Pynch Lake, Midwestern resort where the family has gone for generations, and now live full time in somewhat reduced financial circumstances. Franny, caught in that strange hinterland between childhood and adolescence, becomes increasingly entwined in the lives of her older sisters, Rosamund and Martie. She is their confidante, but is too young to drink and attend the nightly parties by the lake. She is too young to have an ever-changing string of boyfriends like hersisters. She is too young to fall truly in love, isn't she! And then she meets Ryan Marvel, an 18-year-old college freshman...Elizabeth Evans gives an unforgettable portrait of one family's life. But the centre of this astonishing novel is a powerful--and provocative--love story. And in Franny Wahl, Evans has created one the most memorable and endearing characters in recent fiction.
