Mary Volmer

Reliance, Illinois

€ 28.95

`Illinois, 1874: With a birthmark covering half her face, thirteen-year-old Madelyn Branch is accustomed to cold and awkward greetings, and expects no less in Reliance, Illinois. After all, her mother, Rebecca, was careful not to mention a daughter in the Matrimonial Times ad which brought them to the struggling river town. When Rebecca weds, Madelyn poses as her mother`s younger sister, and earns a grudging berth in her new house. Deeply injured by her mother`s deceptions, Madelyn soon leaves to enter the service of Miss Rose Werner, prodigal daughter of the town`s founder. Miss Rose is a suffragette and purveyor of black market birth control who sees in Madelyn a project and potential acolyte. Madelyn, though, wants to feel beautiful and loved, and shepins her hopes on William Stark, a young photographer, and a haunted Civil War veteran. Volmer`s large-hearted, captivating novel takes in not just precocious, romantic Madelyn, but a whole town and way of life. Gossip, murder, love and hate, lace-makingand drunken fist fights, sinners, saviors, and even Mark Twain himself grace the pages of Reliance, Illinois, a brilliant and beautiful window into American life during a period of tumultuous change. `-
