The story of two women caught in the rural America of the 1880s, this novel is in part inspired by Perks' own family history. In it, she invites reappraisal of our own society's attitudes toward individuality, religion, illness, sexual orientation, and, especially, friendship, as we approach the turn of a new century.

Praise For…

"In her first novel, Perks has developed her interest in the social history of women in 19th-century America into an intriguing tale of an unusual friendship...Highly recommended for popular fiction collections." - Library Journal
