Summary
"This first novel by a 68-year-old author is the distilled essence of a way of life that no longer exists. Soon after losing her husband, narrator Mavis recalls her itinerant childhood during the Great Depression, when she, her mother, Fern, and her baby sister, Martha May, accompanied her father, Will Maddox, through Texas and Oklahoma while he looked for work as a k̀̀idnapper''--a photographer who specialized in taking portraits of children in their homes. Mavis's memories preserve the hopelessness of the events themselves. When life on the road becomes too difficult, Fern takes her and Martha May to live with her relatives, and she learns what it means to be a poor relation. Her recollections of her father's relatives are equally bleak"--Publishersweekly.com
