[새창] The Book of Polly : A Novel 1614827502_0.jpg

Willow Havens is ten years old and obsessed with the fear that her mother will die. Her mother, Polly, is a cantankerous, take-no-prisoners Southern woman who lives to shoot varmints, drink margaritas, and antagonize the neighbors and she sticks out like a sore thumb among the young modern mothers of their small conventional Texas town. She was in her late fifties when Willow was born, so Willow knows she"s here by accident, a late-life afterthought. Willow"s father died before she was born, her much older brother and sister are long grown and gone and failing elsewhere. It"s just her and bigger-than-life Polly. 

 

Willow is desperately hungry for clues to the family life that preceded her, and especially Polly"s life pre-Willow. Why did she leave her hometown of Bethel, Louisiana, fifty years ago and vow never to return? Who is Garland Jones, her long-ago suitor who possibly killed a man? and will Polly be able to outrun the Bear, the illness that finally puts her on a collision course with her past?
