They are together for one last time, one last weekend, one last party. As the house is stripped bare, their secrets -- and the complex, messy nature of family relationships -- will be revealed. It's about the fault lines that run under the surface, and it's about uncertainty -- the unsettling notion that the earth might shift, literally or metaphorically, at any moment. It's a contemporary novel that plays with time and with ways of telling stories. It finds poetry and beauty in science, and pattern and magic in landscape."--Goodreads."@en ;
