It has been two years since Alden Warren's husband vanished. The police are convinced he ran off and left her, but others know better. Gone is gone, though, and Alden fills the void as best she can, with work, with her urgent attempt to adopt a baby, with sorting through stormy attractions, and--finally--with a new lover named Lux Davis. Lux has his own troubles. He has been prone to high-octane excess and he is trying to stay sober, keep a good job, and keep the police from catching up with a major past transgression. Lux and Alden see something fierce and congenial in each other. Haunted in different ways by the disappearance of Alden's husband, Lux and Alden put their unruly lives together and hope to make something work for once

When Maria Flook's fourteen-year-old sister Karen disappeared from their suburban home, the author was changed forever. My Sister Life maps the story of two castaways from American suburbia who, while apart from each other, live mysteriously parallel lives. With unrelenting realism and beguiling wit, Flook gives us an intimate account of her sister's life as a child prostitute, and of their coming of age in the 1960s--that surreal and wrenching moment of baby-boomer disenfranchisement, when the sexual revolution collided with the domestic fallout from the Vietnam War. From the ocean liners and Paris vacations of their refined upbringing to the gritty peepshows and adult theaters where they find jobs, the girls flee from a beautiful and tormented matriarch with secrets of her own. Her missing sister becomes Flook's secret heroine--the sole example to follow in her journey into womanhood. The sisters live in trailer parks. They are faced with sexual assault, car thefts, and petty crimes with unpredictable men. Escaping from an abusive Vietnam vet, Karen takes her toddler to join her sister, who is herself raising a baby on her own; it is the first time they are under the same roof since their childhood. Their unorthodox reunion allows the sisters to forge a life-saving bond. My Sister Life moves beyond biography or memoir to give us an astonishing vision of an American family--an authentic testimony to the defiant, undaunted faith between two sisters who connect after years apart.
