Abandoned by his beautiful wife Irene during the Great Depression, Henry Talcott spends the summer in a tent on the edge of Black Pond with his two children. Though Henry struggles to provide for his children, he must leave them often to search for work. And while he loves his children deeply, he is devastated by Irene's desertion. When a wealthy neighbor, Mrs. Phyllis Farley, begins to woo the children as companions for her strange, housebound son, their lives change in unexpected ways. Powerfully imagined and intensely felt, The Lost Mother is a haunting masterwork, and Oprah author Mary McGarry Morris's strongest novel to date.
