** Amy and Isabelle **

Title: Amy and Isabelle
Author: Elizabeth Strout
Book Condition: Pre-owned, Excellent

In most ways, Isabelle and Amy are like any other mother and her 16-year-old daughter, a fierce mix of love and loathing exchanged in their every glance. That they eat, sleep and work side by side in the gossip-ridden mill town of Shirley Falls only increases the tension. And just when it appears things can't get any worse, Amy's sexuality begins to unfold, causing a vast and icy rift between mother and daughter that will remain unbridgeable unless Isabelle examines her own secretive and shameful past.
