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." —Georgia Hunter, New York Times bestselling author of We Were the Lucky Ones

"Karen Kelly is the real deal." —Mark Sullivan, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Beneath a Scarlet Sky

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 existed.

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. "
