After the dam
Amy Hassinger (Author)
"Undone by motherhood, judged by her husband, thirty-two-year-old Rachel Clayborne flees with her baby in the middle of the night for the one place on earth that's been her refuge: her grandmother's lake house in northern Wisconsin. Hoping to reconnect with a former, healthier self, she instead faces a confused and dying grandmother, her controlling and possibly gold-digging nurse, and a changed ex-boyfriend--her first and most passionate love. As a constant rain threatens the nearby dam, Rachel struggles to discern what's happened to the past, who she's become, and what kind of a life she will make for herself now--one that clings to ghosts or opens bravely to a wild new geography. From the acclaimed author of Nina: Adolescence and The Priest's Madonna comes a gripping new novel that depicts the transformative power of motherhood with honesty, wit, and compassion"-- Provided by publisher
