The Girl from Charnelle: A Novel by K. L. Cook

Its 1960 in the Panhandle town of Charnelle, Texas -- a year and a half since sixteen-year-old Laura Tates mother boarded a bus and mysteriously disappeared. Assuming responsibility for the Tate household, Laura cares for her father and three brothers and outwardly maintains a sense of calm. But her balance is upset and the repercussions of her familys struggles are revealed when a chance encounter with a married man leads Laura into a complicated relationship for which she is unprepared. As Kennedy battles Nixon for the White House, Laura must navigate complex emotional terrain and choose whether she, too, will flee Charnelle. Dramatizing the tension between desire and familial responsibility, The Girl from Charnelle delivers a heartfelt portrait of a young womans reckoning with the paradoxes of love. Eloquent, tender, and heart-wrenching, K. L. Cooks unforgettable debut novel marks the arrival of a significant new voice in American fiction.
