Mary McGarry Morris
Adult Fiction MORRIS
Summary: When Oprah Winfrey chose Mary McGarry Morris's Songs in Ordinary Time for her book club, she brought more than a million new readers under the spell of a novelist whom the Boston Sunday Globe has called "brilliantly acute...remarkable", and USA Today "extraordinary...deeply satisfying." Critics have compared her to John Steinbeck and Carson McCullers, among others.Now, Morris returns with Fiona Range, a powerful story about a promiscuous woman trying to get her life in order. Raised by a prominent aunt and uncle near Boston, thirty-year-old Fiona Range has developed a high threshold for emotional pain. Her recklessness, generosity, and poor judgment have landed her in more scrapes than her well-bred family -or small-town community -can tolerate. Beautiful, volatile, and smart tongued (or trashy, erratic, and wild, depending on whom you ask), Fiona hits rock bottom with a strange man in her bed after a hapless end to a party. Determined to change, Fiona is certain she fits in somewhere beyond the disapproving family her unwed mother abandoned her to. Maybe comfort lies with Patrick Grady -the scowling Vietnam veteran, scarred in face and soul, her rumored father who wants absolutely nothing to do with her. Undeterred by this dangerous man's threats and angered by the warnings of family and friends, she begins to pursue him...Fiona Range is the compelling story of goodness undermined by guilt, of perilous obsession, and of the twisted bond of betrayal committed in the name of love.
