Life went terribly wrong for Addie Bates in San Diego, and she's been running from dark memories ever since. For fifteen years, the Sleepy Valley Nudist Colony has provided a safe haven for Addie to hide from the crime she committed. But when the residents pack up to go on exhibit at the 1935 world's fair in San Diego, Addie returns and must face the thrilling yet terrifying prospect of reuniting with her estranged sister, Wavey. Addie isn't the only one interested in a reunion. When her niece, Rumor, discovers she has an aunt, Rumor is determined to bring her family together. But it's not so easy when the women are forced to confront family secrets, past and present. Set against the backdrop of the 1935 world's fair, Whistling Women explores the complex relationships between sisters, the sacrifices required to protect family, and the devastating consequences of a single impulsive act.

Throughout history there have been women, endowed with curiosity and abundant spirit, who stepped out of the cave, cast off the shackles of expectation, and struck out for new territory. In this ode to bold, brash, and sometimes just plain dangerous women, Barbara Holland reanimates those rebels who defied convention and challenged authority on a truly grand scale: they traveled the world, commanded pirate ships, spied on the enemy, established foreign countries, scaled 19,000-foot passes, and lobbied to change the Constitution. Some were merry and flamboyant; others depressive and solitary. Some dressed up as men; others cherished their Victorian gowns. Many were ambivalent or absentminded mothers. But every one of them was fearless, eccentric, and fiercely independent. Barbara Holland evokes their energy in this unconventional book that will acquaint you with the likes of Grace O’Malley, a blazing terror of the Irish seas in the 1500s, and surprise you with a fresh perspective on legends like Bonnie Parker of “Bonnie and Clyde” fame. With wit, wisdom, and irreverent flair, They Went Whistling makes a compelling case for the virtue of getting into trouble. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Virgin in the Garden . . . Still Life . . . Babel Tower . . . and now, A Whistling Woman, the triumphant conclusion to A. S. Byatt's dazzling and critically acclaimed quartet of novels about English life. It is the late 1960s, and the world begins to split. While Frederica -- the spirited heroine of the novels -- falls into a career in television in London, tumultuous events in her home county of Yorkshire threaten to change her life and those of the people she loves. Near the university, where the scientists Luk and Jacqueline are studying snails and neurones and the working of the brain, an "anti-university" springs up. On the high moors nearby a gentle therapeutic community is taken over by a turbulent, charismatic leader. Meanwhile, visions of blood and flames, of mirrors and doubles, share the refracting energy of Frederica's mosaic-like television shows. Through her lovingly drawn characters and breathtaking twists of plot, A. S. Byatt illuminates the effervescence of the 1960s -- both its excitement and its dangers -- as no one has done before. Magical, thought-provoking, and with spine-chilling moments, A Whistling Wom
