San Miguel is an extraordinary, haunting novel that begins in 1888, when Marantha Waters moves to a tiny island off the California coast. She has come to restore her failing health joined by her husband, a stubborn and driven Civil War veteran who will run the island’s sheep ranch. Two years later their adopted daughter Edith wants only to escape the life of brutal isolation her father has imposed on her.
The new century brings the arrival of New Yorker Elise Lester and her husband, a World War I veteran seeking to make a new start. But will the peace and beauty of the island see them though the impending war?
Acclaimed author T.C. Boyle keeps readers spellbound as these three women struggle to find peace in the face of hardship.
