The Giller Prize-nominated Home Schooling marks the American debut of a masterful, award-winning storyteller. Set against the moody landscape of Vancouver Island and the thrumming cities of the Pacific Northwest, Carol Windley's stories uncover the hidden freight of families: in the title story, two sisters contend with their idealistic father's sudden inability to provide for their family, and with their attraction to the same boy; in "What Saffi Knows, ' a mother returns to a moment in her past when she held the knowledge that might have saved another child, but not the language with which to convey it; and in "Family in Black," a young woman's world is permanently changed when her mother abandons her father for a man who embodies everything her mother taught her to despise. Families dissolve and reform in new, startling configurations: ghosts appear, the past intrudes and overwhelms the present, familiar terrain takes on a hostile aspect, and happiness depends on unlikely alliances. With the invisibly perfect craftsmanship of Alice Munro, and the flesh-and-blood sense of place of Annie Proulx, Windley carves out territory all her own in these stories, each one a richly imagined world that will stay with readers for a long time. --Amazon

In the title story of this collection, Annabel struggles with her desire to escape life at Miramonte, the altenative school her father founded. As she matures, she begins to understand that she is not the only member of her family trapped by her father's vision. Meanwhile, in "Family in Black," Nadia learns that people can be as changeable and at times as unreliable and indifferent as the landscape, and that happiness depends, often, on unlikely alliances
