Women's Fiction Time Slip
With the writing chops of Ian McEwan and the storytelling of
Lisa Wingate, "a haunting debut" about two intertwined
families and the secrets they've kept buried during the
steel boom in Bethlehem, PA
"A haunting debut."
â€”Georgia Hunter, New York Times bestselling author of
We Were the Lucky Ones
"Karen Kelly is the
real deal." â€”Mark Sullivan, New York Times and
USA Today bestselling author of Beneath a Scarlet
A young woman arrives at her mother-in-law's
intimidating but glorious gilded home in Bethlehem, PA,
happy that her husband is to assume leadership of the family
steel business. But what greets her is not the happy
household she expects, run by the beautiful Susannah, but
hallways where whispered secrets and allusions to tragedy
haunt her and speak to a past she had no idea
Told in alternating time frames, 1962 and
the 1920's, when the true titans of Bethlehem Steel got
their start, this is the story of what happens "when
youthful joys fade and heartache takes hold...It is about
how far mothers will go to protect their families, and how
far wives can be pressed before they push back. "
