About this product
- DescriptionWhen I felt truly lost which was most of the time I went out to the narrow lot and sat down in the weeds. From there I could observe both houses. After all, I had two eyes, didn t I? Two strils, two arms, two kbby knees. The trouble was, I had only one heart. Growing up in False River, Mississippi, Clea Shine learned early that a small town is place for big secrets. Having fled years ago in the wake of a tragedy and w settled with a family of her own, she faces a turning point in her marriage and seeks refuge in the one place she vowed never to return. Clea s homecoming is bittersweet. Reunited with Jerusha Lovemore, the kindly neighbor who raised her, Clea gains a sense of love and comfort, but still cant escape the ghosts of her past: the abandonment by her disreputable mother, her constant search for belonging, the truth behind that fateful night from long ago. Once outspoken and impulsive, Clea w seeks only redemption and peace of mind. And as a hurricane threatens to hit False River, everything she has tried to forget may finally be exposed once and for all. A mesmerizing and poignant work by a master of the Soutern vel, Playing with Matches is a stunning tale of guilt, forgiveness, and the enduring bonds of family.
