From the celebrated author of Big Fish, an imaginative, moving novel about two sisters and the dark legacy and magical town that bind them. Helen and Rachel McAllister, who live in a town called Roam, are as different as sisters can be Helen older, bitter, and conniving; Rachel beautiful, naveand blind. But when their parents die an untimely death, Rachel has to rely on Helen for everything, and Helen embraces her role in all the wrong ways, convincing Rachel that the world is a dark and dangerous place she couldnt possibly survive on her ownor so Helen believes, until Rachel makes a surprising choice that turns both their worlds upside down.
In this new novel, Southern literary master Daniel Wallace returns to the tradition of tall-tales and folklore made memorable in Big Fish. The Kings and Queens of Roam is a wildly imaginative, beautifully written, and intimately moving tale of family and the ties that bind.
