Talking to the Dead: A Novel by Helen Dunmore

When Isabel was seven and Nina was four, their baby brother died in his crib -- a death that has haunted both sisters ever since. Now, twenty-five years later, Isabel has just given birth to a son of her own, and Nina has come down from London to help out.<P>The two sisters could not be more different. Beautiful, blond Isabel has married and retreated to the country to cultivate her garden. Dark, sensual Nina travels the world as a freelance photographer. Yet the sisters are inextricably bound together by the events of their childhood. As the summer weeks pass, searing memories long locked away come rushing back, pushing Nina toward an intimate betrayal -- and driving Isabel to a shocking, transforming act.<P>With all the mesmerizing intensity of Josephine Harts Damage, Talking to the Dead cuts to the heart of family love and family lies, exposing the secrets that hold us together -- and tear us apart.
