Franny is the youngest of three daughters, and at thirteen she is just beginning to see her family and the world as they truly exist. ROWING IN EDEN tells the story, through Franny's eyes, of one summer at Pynch Lake, the midwestern resort where the family has gone for generations, and now lives 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. She is their confidant, 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. She is too young to fall truly in love, isn't she? And then she meets Ryan Marvel, an eighteen year old college freshman. Like Beth Gutcheon, Elizabeth Evans paints a masterful portrait of adolescence and a powerful, if unusual, love story.

Pynch Lake is quiet nine months of the year but bursts into life each summer when the vacationers arrive. In the summer of 1965, year-round residents Harold and Peg Wahl find the world that once belonged to them is now being taken over by their older daughters, returned from college for the summer. Cool and self-possessed Rosamund is receiving the attention of the family friend who formerly courted Peg. Martie is filling the house with parties and houseguests of her own. No one in the family is paying much attention to the precocious thirteen-year-old Franny, who sets out to find a life of her own and, in the process, turns the Wahl family upside down. In rich and lyrical language, Elizabeth Evans, author of the critically acclaimed novelsCarter Clay and The Blue Hour, has created both a profound meditation and a haunting story about the promises and betrayals of love. And in Franny Wahl, Evans has created one of the most memorable and endearing characters in recent fiction. Bookseller Inventory # BTE9780060954703
