Publisher's Summary

Leading different lives now, sisters Frances and Cynthia have managed to stay in touch - at a distance.

With the reappearance of their elderly, long-estranged father they find themselves reunited for a cold, snowy Thanksgiving week, during which sleeping tensions and old griefs reawaken.

At turns poignant and funny, this haunting novel demonstrates what happens when one person tries to rewrite another's history, and explores why families stay together even when it may be in their own interests to keep apart.

Critic Reviews

"A wonderfully poignant, beautifully observed, yet quietly sinister story." (Woman and Home)
