For readers of Orphan Train and The Nightingale comes a “thought-provoking [and] complex tale about two families, two generations apart . . . based on a notorious true-life scandal.”*
From Connie Willis, winner of multiple Hugo and Nebula Awards, comes a comedic romp through an unpredictable world of mystery, love, and time travel . . .
Kate inherits a house from an uncle she never met, filled with hoarder junk. But buried underneath the trash, she finds many treasures, as well as insights into the life of the uncle she wishes she could have known. Ultimately, the inheritance changes her life.
