Description: "Father Melancholy's Daughter," the critically acclaimed prequel to the New York Times bestseller Evensong, is the poignant and lyrical story of Margaret Gower, the daughter of an Episcopal priest in a small Virginia town. When the minister's wife abandons them both to pursue unfulfilled dreams -- and is later killed in a car accident -- Margaret and her idealistic father must find solace in each other and somehow come to terms with the empty space in their lives. A sharp yet affectionate portrait of a small town and a celebration of the spirituality which influences the lives of its citizens.

In "A Southern Family," 28-year-old Theo Quick goes off to attempt a reconciliation with his girlfriend. No one will ever know what was said, or why Theo brought a gun, but hours later they are both found dead. In the aftermath, Theo's family searches for an explanation, as years of resentment and anger cloud the truth. As the Quicks reveal themselves in this masterful, multi-voiced narrative, a picture of a family emerges that is stark, hypnotic and -- sadly -- truthful.
