Unravelling

(Hyperion, 1997; Harcourt Brace/Harvest, 1999)

This rich, evocative novel, set in 19th-century New England, follows the fortunes and misfortunes of a young, headstrong woman, Aimee Slater. Aimee has always dreamed of a life beyond the small farm her family owns. When she sets out to seek her fortune at the Lowell Textile Mills, she opens a rift between herself and her mother that feels, in her own words, like “an impossible distance.” How Aimee bridges that vast gulf is beautifully told in this acclaimed and moving story of love and loss.
