Anton DiSclafani

It is 1930, the midst of the Great Depression. After her mysterious role in a family tragedy, passionate, strong-willed Thea Atwell, age fifteen, has been cast out of her Florida home, exiled to an equestrienne boarding school in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Weaving provocatively between home and school, the narrative powerfully unfurls the true story behind Thea's explusion from her family. Part scandalous love story, part coming-of-age tale, DiSclafani's debut is an immersive and transporting page-turner.
