A novel about family and the secrets that we keep—a young woman learning to love and leave home and realizing that, maybe, she never quite left. From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Still Life with Bread Crumbs and Rise and Shine.

This story begins in the 1960s, and explores how Mimi Miller comes of age, over and over again.

As a young girl in Miller’s Valley, an ordinary farming town that may be facing its final days, Mimi is observing adults, selling corn, growing up and changing, and watching the world around her change, too.

As the years go by, the unthinkable starts to seem inevitable. Anna Quindlen’s novel takes us through the changing eras of Mimi and her family, as secrets are revealed, and the heartbreaks of growing up and falling in love with the wrong man are overcome.

A deeply moving, inspiring story of a young woman learning to love and leave, the place and family from which she comes.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A moving exploration of family and notions of home…Quindlen’s prose is crisp and her insights resonant. This coming-of-age story is driven as much by the fully realized characters as it is by the astute ideas about progress and place.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “In a quiet, unaffected performance, narrator Brittany Pressley makes 1960s Miller’s Valley, Pennsylvania, incredibly real. The government is pressuring residents to move because of a plan to flood the town and make it a reservoir…The story is told by eleven-year-old Mimi Miller, and Pressley captures her youth and innate intelligence, presenting a whip-smart girl who is aware of the lies in the government’s geological surveys. Quindlen’s spot-on insights allow Pressley to give each family member a convincing personality…Engrossing listening.”

  • “There are familiar elements in this story—the troubled brother, the eccentric aunt, a discovery that hints at a forbidden relationship—but they are synthesized in a fresh way in this keenly observed, quietly powerful novel.”
