Regina Patterson Kendall is finding her life superficial and empty. She hankers back to the year she spent as a teenager in the Arizona town of Harden, where her anthropologist father took his family to study the Hopi.
There she met Casey Colter, a love she meant to leave behind but never did. Her increasingly morose, reclusive, and rebellious behavior is disturbing her parents, confusing her daughters, and jeopardizing her husband Howie’s career as a corporate lawyer. At the advice of her grandmother, the family matriarch, Reggie returns to Harden in quest of the girl she was and the woman she wanted to be—and hopefully to confront her ghosts and finally lay them to rest.
Killing Time offers something for everyone: drama, humor, love, sex, mystery, murder--and woven throughout, the soul of the novel, The Hopi Way of Life.
