Left Bank Books
Left Bank Books welcomes Jane Hamilton, author of the Oprah's Book Club selections The Books of Ruth and A Map of the World, who will sign and discuss her new novel, The Excellent Lombards! Refreshments will be available.
Mary Frances "Frankie" Lombard is fiercely in love with her family's sprawling apple orchard and the tangled web of family members who inhabit it. Content to spend her days planning capers with her brother William, competing with her brainy cousin Amanda, and expertly tending the orchard with her father, Frankie desires nothing more than for the rhythm of life to continue undisturbed. But change is inevitable. As Frankie is forced to face the possibility of losing the idyllic future she had envisioned for her family, she must decide whether loving something means clinging tightly or letting go.
"This is the book Jane Hamilton was born to write...[it is] magnificent." —Ann Patchett, Commonwealth
