About this product
- DescriptionThe Mayborn family has cast its shadow over the small town of Loomis for generations. Accompanied by rumours of unnatural family unions, the Mayborns have sunk from their position as powerful landowners to become a white trash clan of pariahs. June Mayborn, a fourteen-year-old with a preternatural sense of smell and a dubious code of morals, lights a deadly fire, accidentally killing an aging cult leader. The subsequent funeral draws the beautiful and capricious Iris Utter and her sombre daughter, Lee, back to Loomis where eight years earlier Iris's son mysteriously disappeared. Needing answers to the past, they begin a dangerous and disturbing relationship with the Mayborns. This bold and original vel, spiked with dark humour, explores the boundaries of family ties and consequences of crossing them.
