Book Club Pick!
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Miller’s Valley and Still Life with Bread Crumbscomes a provocative novel that explores what it means to be a mother, a wife, and a woman at a moment of reckoning. Some days Nora Nolan thinks that she and her husband lead a charmed life—and why not? New York City was once Nora’s dream destination, and her clannish dead-end block has become a safe harbor amid the urban craziness. The owners watch one another’s children grow up.

Then one morning, Nora returns from her run to discover that a terrible incident has shaken the neighborhood, and the enviable dead-end block turns into a potent symbol of a divided city.
