Angela Tyler has spent the greater part of her life in suspension between the world of the small Midwestern farm she grew up on, and her current life in Northern California as the wife of a college professor and mother of three. When her father dies and the family farm is sold, betrayals both small and large are brought to the surface. Angela faces these betrayals and finds new ground to stand on.

Symbolic of transformation, snakes form the bedrock of Angela's narrative as she examines her relationship to her father, family, the land, and her life. Highly recommended, Snakes is a transformative, engaging, and seductive story about life's insoluble contradictions.
