Fiction Book of the Month at Metrotown
"I wanted you to have an extraordinary life," confesses Rosemary's mother in Karen Joy Fowler's wise, provocative and wildly endearing take on family love. Did no one warn Mrs Cooke to be careful what she wished for? ... Rewind to the day back in 1970s Indiana, when narrator-heroine Rosemary is separated from her beloved "twin" sister, Fern, and sent, aged 5, for a week's visit to her grandparents. She senses that she has committed a heinous crime, for which her punishment is expulsion from the bosom of the family. But no. On her return, it is the thrill-seeking Fern who has been dispatched – never to be seen again. There are no explanations." -- The Guardian
