Summary:
To Ella Beene, happiness means living in the northern California
river town of Elbow with her husband, Joe, and his two young children. Yet one
summer day Joe breaks his own rule-never turn your back on the ocean-and
a sleeper wave strikes him down, drowning not only the man but his many
secrets.
For three years, Ella has been the only mother the kids have known
and has believed that their biological mother, Paige, abandoned them. But when
Paige shows up at the funeral, intent on reclaiming the children, Ella soon
realizes there may be more to Paige and Joe’s story. “Ella’s the best
thing that’s happened to this family,” say her close-knit Italian-American
in-laws, for generations the proprietors of a local market. But their devotion
quickly falters when the custody fight between mother and stepmother urgently
and powerfully collides with Ella’s quest for truth.

Schwartz & Wade

Summary:
Set on the Kansas prairie in the 19th century, this debut novel in
verse presents a harrowing portrait of pioneer life through the perspective of
12-year-old Mavis Elizabeth Betterly, called May B. The spare free-verse
poems effectively sketch this quietly courageous heroine, the allure and
dangers of the open prairie, and the claustrophobic sod house setting. Writing
with compassion and a wealth of evocative details, Rose offers a memorable
heroine and a testament to the will to survive.
