Overview

When sixteen-year-old Sophie Granger suspects she is pregnant, she digs out her mother Peggy's tarot cards. Peggy hasn't read fortunes since her hippie days in Taos, but as soon as she flips the cards, Peggy sees both her daughter's predicament and the family crisis that will ensue. A panicked Peggy scatters the layout and rushes from the room, leaving Sophie to construct a literal house of cards. Set in New Mexico, this engrossing family novel raises questions about the role that fortune plays in our lives.
