Description

This 2017-2018 CLSC selection by Jane Hamilton, the internationally bestselling author of The Book of Ruth and A Map of the World, is a a heartfelt coming-of-age story.

 

 Mary Frances "Frankie" Lombard is fiercely in love with her family's sprawling apple orchard and the tangled web of family members who inhabit it. Content to spend her days planning capers with her brother William, competing with her brainy cousin Amanda, and expertly tending the orchard with her father, Frankie desires nothing more than for the rhythm of life to continue undisturbed. But she cannot help being haunted by the historical fact that some family members end up staying on the farm and others must leave. Change is inevitable, and threats of urbanization, disinheritance, and college applications shake the foundation of Frankie's roots. As Frankie is forced to shed her childhood fantasies and face the possibility of losing the idyllic future she had envisioned for her family, she must decide whether loving something means clinging tightly or letting go."

 

The CLSC presentation for this book, along with Commonwealth, will take place Thursday, August 24, 2017 at 3:30pm in the Hall of Philosophy.
