Summary
As her Wisconsin community endures a long season of drought and feels the shockwaves of World War II, fifteen-year-old Cielle endures a more personal calamity: the unexpected death of her father. On a balmy summer afternoon, she finds him hanging in the barn--the start of a dark secret that threatens her family's livelihood. A war rages elsewhere, while in the deceptive calm of the American heartland, Cielle's family contends with a new reality and fights not to be undone
Summary
A full-length novel based on the author's award-winning short story from the collection, Love Is No Small Thing, follows the experiences of a World War II-era farming family in Wisconsin whose perspectives and livelihoods are upended by a father's shattering suicide
