Deborah Nedelman Shares "What We Take For Truth" @ Peshastin Libe
"An impressive environmental tale with an engaging heroine from a talented new novelist," says a Kirkus starred review. Prize-winning Deborah Nedelman shares her debut novel, What We Take For Truth, the story of a young woman who finds her strength when the world around her crumbles. It is a timely tale about shifting loyalties and the painful choices we are forced to make in order to preserve what we value most.
As this novel opens, it is 1990 and Grace Tillman, who has lived all her life in the tiny logging town of Prosperity, Washington, has just graduated from high school and is facing a very uncertain future. The spotted owl controversy is about to destroy her world before she has had her chance to learn who she is and what it means to be a part of this community.
What We Take for Truth tells a story that both defends a way of life that is dying and celebrates a landscape that is being lost.
