The new sensational thriller from bestselling author of THE MARSH KING'S DAUGHTER, Karen Dionne.
Two generations of sisters. An unthinkable crime. A secret that could ruin a family.
Most of us have read about or known of people who have been imprisoned unjustly for years or even decades. But what if you discovered that you had unjustly imprisoned yourself?
After spending 15 years in a mental hospital as a self-inflicted punishment for her childhood crime, a young woman learns that she might not have killed her mother as she has always believed.
Karen Dionne drew heavily on her experiences during the 1970s in Michigan's Upper Peninsula to write Home (previously published as The Marsh King's Daughter), when she and her husband lived in a tent with their six-week-old daughter while they built a tiny cabin. Karen carried water from a stream, made wild apple jelly over a campfire (and defended it against marauding raccoons), sampled wild foods such as cattail heads and milkweed pods, and washed nappies in a bucket (which Karen says is every bit as nasty as it sounds). She enjoys nature photography and lives with her husband in Detroit's northern suburbs.
