A 17-year-old girl living in West Virginia and her disabled younger brother. What stories lie trapped in the boy's head and how did all of the layers of their past combine to create their present? Jayne Anne Phillips slowly reveals long-kept secrets as new forces threaten to separate the brother and sister in this stunnning novel...a work of fiction that defies easy description but remains absolutely engrossing at every level.
We'll be discussing Lark & Termite on Sunday afternoon, May 17 at 2:30, and welcome your comments, insights, discoveries...anything you'd like to share about this book (even if you don't get to finish it in time!). Our Sunday afternoon book discussions are open to all and full of ideas for similar reads and great new authors. The facilitator is Jordon Pecile, who has taught at numerous colleges and universities, most recently the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. He's been a favorite here for many years and always sparks lively conversations! This is our final spring session and promises to be a special one. Please join us!
