Clean, tight, unmarked; absolute minimal wear; appears unread; Lily Piper and her family live in an ephemeral world, due to collapse any moment when the Lord comes to pluck His faithful from the drought-ravaged Prairies. In her teen, Lily is sent to England to care for her grandmother, where she explores the delicious question of whom she might become. Experiencing life in all its ambiguity, she waits with the rest of England for World War II to start - until the news she has been dreading arrives on the doorsteps. A novel of great wit and depth, this engrossing story of Lily Piper tells us something of how we can make sense of a future when the future is something we can hardly imagine.
