MILLER’S VALLEY, Anna Quindlen’s eighth novel, is her provocative, illuminating novel of one woman who has had to leave home to find herself. Mimi Miller’s family has lived in Miller’s Valley for generations. As she grows up among the farmland and open hills of rural Pennsylvania, Mimi eavesdrops on her parents and observes the secrets of the people around her, realizing that her family, their friends, their town and way of life—everything is on the verge of enormous change. But what changes most is Mimi herself. With the voice of her mother always running through her head, Mimi navigates the toxicity of family secrets, the danger of gossip, the flaws of marriage, the inequality of friendship, and the risks of passion, loyalty and love —and, most of all, the gradual discovery of an ambition that will take her far from the town that is an essential part of who she is. In her powerful novel, Quindlen explores how mothers and daughters influence each other in ways they themselves might never really comprehend, and how “no one ever leaves the town where they grew up, even if they go.”
