Dancing On Glass
Cover in category: 'Fiction' > 'Literary'
Bader Von Vechten's marriage to Katherine Craig unites the leading families of Linwood, Iowa, and promises to heal the wounds of three generations. But when Bader commences a love affair with a beautiful young man, Katherine is goaded to the desperate act that will change their lives irrevocably, setting in motion the series of tragic events that will play themselves out over two generations. Only twenty-five years later, in the wake of death, murder, and disgrace, can Bader, changed almost beyond recognition, return to Linwood. There a chance encounter affords Bader his last hope for human contact - and redemption. Psychologically uncompromising and emotionally gripping, Dancing on Glass is a bold novel that sweeps the reader along from its unforgettable opening scene to its climactic ending. A brilliant evocation of the passion and violence that lurk beneath the surface of small-town life, from a writer whose fiction has already been hailed as masterly.
