Meredith Ann Fuller will sign Quarry

Meredith Ann Fuller will sign Quarry ($38.99). In Quincy, Massachusetts, a young girl of Finnish and Irish descent loses her father under traumatic circumstances and sets out to learn what happened to him. Intuitive, naïve, implacable, Rose learns to read landscapes of the natural world and the human heart. She confronts history and its suppression. But it will take personal risk and imaginative reach to understand that she is part of a much larger story of immigrants to America. With edgy ordinariness, Fuller’s narrative gift describes secrets and tragedies, slowly revealing the riskier mythic underbelly of every good story. Joan Anderson’s illustrations evoke the inspirited worlds of characters ranging across the United States and Finland. Resurrecting a lost 19th century tradition, Quarry is a stunningly illustrated novel for adult readers of our time.
