The Carriage House
A NovelBook - 2013
A gorgeous debut novel from an award-winning poet about an old moneyed family, facing the loss of the youthful talent and storied history that defined them. After suffering a stroke, patriarch William Adair wakes up in his hospital bed and realizes that his family has changed: they are less extraordinary than he had remembered. To help him recover, William's daughters take on the battle for the carriage house that once stood as a symbol of their place in the world. "The Carriage House" is a moving, beautifully wrought novel about the complex bonds of siblings and about rebuilding lost lives.
