Since the publication of her astonishing debut, "Vanished," Mary McGarry Morris has been compared with John Steinbeck and Carson McCullers and widely praised as aa superb storytellera ("The Washington Post") and aone of our finest American writersa ("The Miami Herald"). Now, in her sixth novel, Morris has achieved new heights with her riveting chronicle of the Talcotts, a family in rural Vermont during the Great Depression.
Abandoned by his beautiful wife, Irene, Henry and their two young children, Thomas and Margaret, spend that summer in a tent on the edge of Black Pond. Henry, an itinerant butcher, struggles to provide for them, but often must leave them alone as he travels the county in search of work. And while Henry loves his children deeply, he is devastated by their motheras desertion. He has not told them why she left or if sheall return. When Mrs. Phyllis Farley, a prosperous neighbor, begins to woo the children as companions for her strange, housebound son, Henry must weigh an unusual proposition, the consequences of which may cost him everything. Powerfully imagined and intensely felt, "The Lost Mother" is a haunting masterwork and McGarry Morrisas strongest novel to date.
