Title: Landslide /
Summary, etc. note: "A gorgeous, jewel of a novel about a mother caring for her two sons while everything else--her marriage, the fishing industry her New England community relies on--threatens to crumble around her After a fishing accident leaves her husband hospitalized across the border in Canada, Jill is left to look after "the wolves"--her two teenage boys--alone. Nothing comes easy in their remote corner of Maine: money is tight, her son Sam is getting into more trouble by the day, and Jill begins to suspect her marriage isn't as stable as she once believed. As one disaster gives way to the next, Jill worries it's not enough to be a caring wife and mother anymore--not enough to show up when needed, nudge her boys in the right direction, and believe everything will be okay. But how to protect this life she loves, this household, this family? With remarkable poise and startling beauty, Landslide ushers us into a modern household where Instagram posts, sex-positivity talks, and old fishing tales become a kind of love language for a family. Conley's stunning portrait of a family at odds is as compelling as it is moving, and asks how to remain devoted when the eye of the storm closes in"--
