display_description From the award-winning author of Leaving Lucy Pear, an unflinching, lushly imagined love story set against the backdrop of the epic frontier
Anna Solomon's new novel Leaving Lucy Pear is available now from Viking Books

When 16-year-old Minna Losk journeys from Odessa to America as a mail-order bride, she dreams of a young, wealthy husband, a handsome townhouse, and freedom from physical labor and pogroms. But her husband Max turns out to be twice her age, rigidly Orthodox, and living in a one-room sod hut in South Dakota with his two teenage sons.
The country is desolate, the work treacherous. And most troubling, Minna finds herself increasingly attracted to her older stepson. As a brutal winter closes in, the family's limits are tested, and Minna, drawing on strengths she barely knows she has, is forced to confront her despair, as well as her desire.
A Boston Globe Best Seller

"Evocative of Alice Munro, Amy Bloom, and Willa Cather, but fueled by Anna Solomon's singular imagination . . . a masterful debut . . . embroidered with sage, beautiful writing on every page . . . marks the start of a long, fine, and important career." —Jenna Blum, author of Those Who Save Us

"Minna is a terrifically complex heroine: a little snobby, a little selfish and wholly sympathetic." —The New York Times

"Like...Jonathan Safran Foer and Dara Horn. [A] wondrously strange story of Jewish immigration." —Miami Herald

"This mythic rendition of the American immigrant narrative...finds the wondrous in the ordinary and vividly depicts the complex collisions between the Old World and the New." —More
