Keeper of the Night
A National Book Award-winning AuthorIsabel's mother died peacefully. At least that's what Isabel likes to think, since no one will talk about the truth. Kimberly Willis Holt has written a painfully beautiful story, set on the lush island of Guam, about a young woman's struggle to protect her family after her mother's suicide. At once disturbing and honest, devastating and hopeful, Isabel's voice is aching to be heard - because some wounds can't heal until the truth has finally been spoken.
