Description
Sixteen-year-old Lucy Gold is about℗¿to run away with a much older man to live off the grid in rural Pennsylvania, a rash act that will have vicious repercussions for both her and her older sister, Charlotte. As Lucy¿́¿s default parent for most of their lives, Charlotte has seen her youth marked by the burden of responsibility, but never more so than when Lucy¿́¿s dream of a rural paradise turns into a nightmare. ℗¿ Cruel Beautiful World examines the intricate, infinitesimal distance between seduction and love, loyalty and duty, chaos and control, as it explores what happens when you¿́¿re responsible for things you cannot make right.℗¿ ℗¿ Set against a backdrop of peace, love, and the Manson murders, the novel is a reflection of the era: exuberant, defiant, and precarious all at once. And Caroline Leavitt isat her mesmerizing best in this haunting,℗¿nuanced portrait of love, sisters, and the impossible legacy of family.
