[a Novel]Book - 2007
The Field sisters--Norma, Lou and Sandy--grow up under the rule of a tyrannical, military-minded father in the sanitized, post-nuclear suburbs of the fifties and sixties. It is their mother, however, who has the greatest influence over the girls' childhoods. She forever changes their lives the day she drops her baby son over Niagara Falls to his death. This dark secret drives each of the girls to find different ways to cope with the quickly changing world around them and the war zone that is their home.
