Summary

NEW YORK TIMESBESTSELLER Charles Frazier, the acclaimed author of Cold Mountainand Thirteen Moons,returns with a dazzling novel set in small-town North Carolina in the early 1960s. With his brilliant portrait of Luce, a young woman who inherits her murdered sister's troubled twins, Frazier has created his most memorable heroine. Before the children, Luce was content with the reimbursements of the rich Appalachian landscape, choosing to live apart from the small community around her. But the coming of the children changes everything, cracking open her solitary life in difficult, hopeful, dangerous ways. In a lean, tight narrative, Nightwoodsresonates with the timelessness of a great work of art. "Impossible to shake." -Entertainment Weekly "Fantastic." -The Washington Post "Astute and compassionate." -The Boston Globe
