More Description

Beautifully written, wonderfully observed, and deeply felt, Ann Darby's haunting first novel marks her remarkable debut. The Orphan Game is the story of a young woman's passage, from the troubled family she's longing to escape to the "family" she struggles to create when she is forced into an early adulthood. Set in a quiet Southern California town in 1965, this rueful tale is told in the intertwined voices of three women: Maggie, the young woman struggling to define herself; Marian, the mother who must relinquish her; and Mrs. Rumsen, the childless great-aunt who cares for Maggie when her mother can't. With an intimacy immediate and true, The Orphan Game portrays the powerful love that not only binds a family but can also break it apart.
