The Heroines

Eileen Favorite


Copyright/published Year: 2008 by Hutchinson


ISBN: 0091921147


Binding: Paperback

Watergate is breaking news, but at the Prairie Bluff boarding house in rural Illinois, there are more immediate concerns . . . Emma Bovary has arrived unannounced - and distraught - and Anne-Marie and her daughter Penny have wrenched themselves from the television coverage to attend to their new guest. But if there's one rule at Prairie Bluff, it's never meddle in the lives of the Heroines, however cruel the destinies to which they are bound. There's nothing to be done for poor Emma, immersed in her narrative crisis, save for the provision of tea, a tirelessly sympathetic ear, and clean linens . . . Adolescent angst isn't a patch on beautiful and grief-stricken - and Penny, a moody thirteen, knows she's no competition for her mother's attention against these ethereal creatures. Hurt and excluded, and frustrated by her mother's passivity in the face of Emma's terrible fate, Penny strikes out across the prairie to cool her hot head. But when she arrives at the forbidden woods, she's in no mood to obey her mother's second rule, "never to enter" - and soon finds herself in a world of very real heroes and villains, an unwilling heroine in her own terrifying story . . .
