Overview

When Francie and Colt Hart drive past an abandoned 150-year-old farmhouse in rural Pennsylvania, they both fall head-over-heels in love with it — but for entirely different reasons. Colt, an ambitious, hard-charging stock trader, sees it as a potential showcase for his wealth. Francie, long dependent on antidepressants, hopes it will inspire her to resume the literary life she abandoned when she married Colt ten years before; perhaps, she thinks, it will save their faltering marriage. But the more they learn about the house, and especially the tragic history of its previous occupants (whose descendants are their new neighbors), the more it threatens to drive them apart.

This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.

“SOMEWHERE SOUTH OF HERE is one of the sweetesttempered books around.”

“A grand debut. Eddie’s Bastard is a beguiling blend of narrative con brio, human-heartedness, and zany surprises.”
