Descripción

Filled with the insight that is the hallmark of Anna Quindlen’s beloved bestsellers, this extraordinary novel is about a woman coming of age as she unearths surprising secrets about her family—and unexpected truths about herself.   “No one ever leaves the town where they grew up, even if they go,” says Mimi Miller as she tells the story of her life, from the 1960s to the present, in a small American town on the verge of upheaval. The Miller family has lived and farmed in Miller’s Valley for generations, but Mimi sees change looming at the corners of her community and within the walls of her home.   As she grows up and discovers sex, love, and ambition, the people in her world who have seemed forever bound together begin to drift apart: Mimi’s mother, from her reclusive sister, Ruth; Mimi’s damaged brother Tommy, from his family and son; and even the townspeople, menaced by the lingering presence of government officials. As Mimi looks back on the past, she comes to understand that her family and the town itself might always have been destined to disappear.   Anna Quindlen’s stunning new novel is a masterly study of family, memory, loss, and, ultimately, discovery and finding home. Miller’s Valley reminds us that the place where you grew up can disappear, and the people in it too, but all will live on in your heart forever.
