about this book

From the acclaimed author of The Book of Ruth and A Map of the World, this is an eloquent and compassionate novel about a young man's passion for dance. Set against the backdrop of their summer home in Wisconsin, it tells of the way a family--and a son's place in it--can change overnight. "[The book] is Hamilton's third novel and arguably her best, for it matches its range of emotion with a technical precision both masterful and haunting."--The Boston Globe.
