A SUMMONS TO NEW ORLEANS: A Novel by Barbara Hall

Noras life is falling apart. With the shrill chorus of her mothers incessant I-told-you-sos sounding in her ears, Nora has just watched her husband run off with a waitress almost young enough to be his kid. So when her old college friend Simone calls to invite her to New Orleans, Nora jumps at the chance to get away from it all and get a fresh perspective. But it soon becomes clear that Simone has more than relaxation in mind.<P>Simone, an embattled rape victim, has called upon her oldest friends for support during her attackers trial. Nora, already emotionally at sea and diminished by heartache, resolves nonetheless to stand by her friend. And Poppy, the blisteringly plainspoken third member of the group, seems to have recently found religion and left her husband because of it.<P>Using her own ordeal as a rape victim in New Orleans, author Barbara Hall has created an enthralling portrait of three remarkable women, each struggling to come to terms with lives that havent worked out the way they planned. A Summons to New Orleans is an intensely personal and provocadve look at contemporary womanhood.
