KAREN WHITE

MONDAY, JUNE 23; 7 PM

KAREN WHITE will introduce A Long Time Gone set in the Mississippi Delta, the most southern place on earth, filled with sweet gums and pines, swamps, cotton fields and swaying cypress tress. In the new book, we find that Vivien Walker has left her home in the Delta and she has sworn never to go back, as generations of the women in her family had. But in the spring, nine years to the day since she’d left, that’s exactly what happens. Vivien returns, fleeing from a broken marriage and her lost dreams for children. But things change in ways she cannot imagine when a violent storm reveals the remains of a long-dead woman buried near the Walker home. Vivien knows it is time to rediscover herself – by uncovering the secrets of her family and breaking the cycle of loss that has haunted them all for generations. NAL

Karen White is the bestselling author of seventeen previous books, including The Time Between, Return to Tradd Street, The House on Tradd Street, The Girl on Montagu Street, On Folly Beach, and The Color of Light. She grew up in London and now lives with her family near Atlanta, Georgia.
