Content descriptions

General Note: Includes "P.S.: Insights, Interviews, & More...", which consists of information about the author, an interview with the author, a reading group guide, and an excerpt from "The House Girl"
Summary, etc.: "When the renowned poet Fiona Skinner is asked about the inspiration behind her iconic work, The Love Poem, she tells her audience a story about her family and a betrayal that reverberates through time. It begins in a big yellow house, with a funeral, an iron poker, and a brief variation forever known as the Pause: a free and feral summer in a middle-class Connecticut town. Caught between the predictable life they once led and an uncertain future that stretches before them, the Skinner siblings--fierce Renee, sensitive Caroline, golden-boy Joe, and watchful Fiona--emerge from the Pause staunchly loyal and deeply connected. Two decades later, the siblings find themselves again confronted with a family crisis that tests the strength of this bond and forces them to question the life choices they've made and to ask what, exactly, they are willing to do for love"--Back cover.
