The linked stories in Kate Walbert's debut collection examine the very contemporary predicament of families without geographic roots. The first half of the book chronicles the life of Marion Clark, a "company wife" who repeatedly packs the household and accompanies her husband around the globe. In the stories that follow, her adult daughter, Rebecca, dutifully attempts to fulfill her mother's thwarted aspirations. From the patchwork of communication that unfolds between mother and daughter, Walbert creates a narrative that is both fractured and lyrical.

Mia was the lone survivor in a car crash that killed both of her parents and her younger brother. She had to get cosmetic surgery and leg surgery. Although she survived, as soon as she was conscious, she made the decision to leave Oregon. She was tired of the sympathetic looks after five months of getting an overload of it while she healed from surgery. Her luck at being accepted to Julliard came just in time.

It's Paris, it's spring, the chestnuts on the boulevards are blooming, and when Sterling Kirkland Sawyer, a young writer from New York, arrives in 1921, she's immediately immersed in the frenetic life at literary salons, at the studios of surrealist painters, celebrated sculptors, poets and novelists, at concerts and art exhibitions, at late nights doing the Charleston and the Bunny Hop, and at dinners with lovers and friends at the famous watering-holes of the day. Some eighty years later, Private Investigator, Jamie Prescott, is hired by Sterling's niece, now in her seventies, to find out why and how Sterling disappeared so suddenly in the early 1930s. The clues are obscure as if her whereabouts had been deliberately suppressed at the time, and no one who knew her in Paris has ever come forward. Jamie Prescott is 42, single, six feet and then some, has a master's in criminal justice, occasionally carries a gun, has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and works out of offices on K Street in Washington, D.C. Jamie heads to Paris to follow in Sterling's footsteps and is helped and hindered in her investigation by an ex-husband, a colorful assistant from Manhattan, a stripper from Montmartre, an ancient nun, a would-be poet, and a chatelaine from French wine country. Jamie winds up her quest in New York and Washington in circumstances which surprise even herself.
