This B-format paperback brings the story of one family through four generations, and the scars that mark their shared history, to its optimum audience. Winner of the Prix Femina 2006, it is reminiscent of Nicole Krauss' "The History of Love" in its scale and passion.Narrated by four children from different generations of the same family, "Fault Lines" is a tale of a present haunted by the past. Moving from California to New York, from Haifa to Toronto and Munich, its stories unwind back through the years until, reaching the Holocaust, the devastating secret at the heart of the family's history is finally revealed."Fault Lines" is a riveting and poignant novel in which love, music and faith rage against the spectre of evil. Domestic in focus, epic in scope, and with powerfully drawn characters, it is an irresistible showcase for Nancy Huston's talents.
