Rachel Urquhart's first novel takes us into nineteenth century worlds of opposites. After Polly Kimball burned down the family farm to escape the sexual advances of her father, she and her brother have been placed in a Shaker community where men and women are segregated and amorous ideas are regarded as moral failings. As a fire investigator narrows the search for the arsonists, Polly gains recognition in her sanctuary as a visionary. An ambitious, artfully modulated fiction—and a Discover Great New Writers selection! Editor's recommendation.
