Wildwood

Wildwood

From the acclaimed author of * Blood Orange* comes this unforgettable, mesmerizing tale of the power of friendships-and the secrets that can destroy them. . .

It has been over thirty years since the words "Bluegang Creek" passed their lips. Because something that happened near that shady stream has shaped their lives-and haunted their darkest hours. Now, Liz can no longer bear the silence. What she is about to bring out into the light will test the very limits of friendship-and take all three women back to that fateful summer day when their innocence was shattered forever. . .

A novel of friendship and forgiveness, Wildwood brings to life the lengths to which women will go to protect themselves-and each other-in the name of loyalty. . .and in the name of love.

"The pull of family and career, the limits of friendship and the demands of love all come to vivid life in Wildwood." -Susan Vreeland, author of Girl in Hyacinth Blue

"Resist the urge to turn the page to find out what happens next. Linger, instead, to savor the skillfully crafted writing." -Judy Reeves, author of The Writer's Book of Days

From Booklist

Long-buried memories of a tragedy in their past silently connect three friends and bring an added dimension to the time-tested theme of the power of female friendship in this vibrant debut novel. After 12-year-old Hannah struggles against the sexual advances of a neighbor and pushes him over a cliff to his death, she and her best friends, Liz and Jeanne, pledge never to reveal what happened. But the secret reverberates throughout each of their lives, causing seemingly unrelated difficulties in their relationships with loved ones. Hannah essentially abandons her own teenagers while volunteering with babies born to crack-addicted mothers. Jeanne subjugates herself to a philandering husband, and Liz persistently puts off commitment until, at 50 and on the verge of an abortion, she comes home to confront her friends and try to exorcise their painful memories. Over one short yet cathartic week, the three gain strength from one another and finally begin to take control of their lives as Campbell perceptively explores the complexities of relationships between different genders and ages in this thoroughly enjoyable read.
