The New York Times bestselling author of The Rules of Magic presents a “stunning and hypnotic” novel that “interweaves past and present with piercing images and unfailing energy”(Publishers Weekly).On a secluded waterfront estate on the North Shore of Long Island, a matriarch named Esther rules over her clan.

Her son, Philip, routinely tries to drown himself each summer; her granddaughter sneaks cigarettes and dreams of escape.

And his love for her is growing wild enough to uproot them all...
