Afterward, branded and despised, she returns to a world she no longer knows. Struggling to make her way, she has a chance to rediscover her life, her love, and her soul--in a strange place of shattered hopes and new beginnings called Solitaire.Kelley Eskridge (kelleyeskridge.com) is a novelist, essayist, and screenwriter.

Review:

"An ageless story."--Ursula K. Le Guin ("A Wizard of Earthsea")"A knock-out . . . wonderful!"--Karen Joy Fowler ("The Jane Austen Book Club")"Solitaire is a novel of our time: a story of dashed expectations and corporate manipulations. Eskridge explores what it means to really see ourselves, and what we are ultimately capable of. Jackal, a slight adolescent, matures into an adult capable of living well, no matter what her circumstances. She is a worthy role model for any reader."--"BookPage""Vivid and provocative."--"The Baltimore Sun""As with Eskridge's short fiction, the vividness of the characters is what makes this book so memorable."--"Locus""Psychological insights that would warm the heart of Alice Hoffman."--"The Seattle Times"
