About this title


The black sheep of her troubled family, Ruth struggles to keep the peace between her mother, her young son, and her slightly off-the-wall husband and to put the pieces back together when a heated situation boils over


Hamilton is perfect at drama, keeping you hanging on from revelation to revelation. (Independent)

One of a handful of great American novelists - all women - to have emerged in the past decade, she possesses an unblinking view of the joys and miseries of small-town life, and a lyrical intuition of the mysteries of the soul that marks her as one of the most profound writers we now have. (The Times)

One of America's most vibrant young talents. (Daily Telegraph)

She belongs among the major writers of our time. (San Francisco Chronicle)
