Women's Fiction Historical
Caroline Leavitt is at her mesmerizing best in this
haunting, nuanced portrait of love, sisters, and the
impossible legacy of family.
It’s 1969, and sixteen-year-old Lucy is about to run away
with a much older man to live off the grid in rural
Pennsylvania, a rash act that will have vicious
repercussions for both her and her older sister, Charlotte.
As Lucy’s default caretaker for most of their lives,
Charlotte’s youth has been marked by the burden of
responsibility, but never more so than when Lucy’s dream of
a rural paradise turns into a nightmare.
Cruel Beautiful World examines the intricate, infinitesimal
distance between seduction and love, loyalty and duty, and
explores what happens when you’re responsible for things you
cannot make right.
