Book Image Not Available
Overview
Fifteen years after horrible events that scarred her childhood forever, a young woman named Weeble has the chance for a new life with a man who loves her -- if she can only face what happened that summer after she turned eleven.
Description
Weeble has a secret so painful she's hiding it even from herself. At ten, she meets Lauren Case, a book-loving daydreamer who offers Weeble refuge from the everyday degradations of life in her poor Midwestern family. Weeble fiercely protects Lauren, just as she protects her sister Annie. But there are forces at work she can't withstand. When Richard Lee Grady arrives in town, he rips lives apart, including Weeble's. Four years after college, Weeble has a new life, new friends, and the potential for love - -if she can only admit what happened one hot July day in 1982. SAINT SEBASTIAN'S HEAD is a dark and riveting journey into the human heart, where fairy tales and incest, angels and demons, magical thinking and guilt, haunt one incredibly resilient woman. From The Midwest Book Review: The past can't be fled from forever. "Saint Sebastian's Head" is the story of Weeble, who, after finding everything she wanted out of life, is forced to face a childhood she never understood and the man who tried to destroy her life before it got started. A story of life and interpersonal and familial intrigue set in 1980s mid-western America, "Saint Sebastian's Head" is a thoughtful and riveting novel.
