The acclaimed author of ELLEN FOSTER and the brilliant New York Times bestseller CHARMS FOR THE EASY LIFE, Kaye Gibbons paints intimate family portraits in lyrical prose, using as her palette the rich, vibrant colors of the American South. SIGHTS UNSEEN is the author at her most passionate and heartfelt best -- an unforgettable tale of unconditional love, and of a family's desperate search for normalcy in the midst of madness. It is a novel of rare poignancy, wit and evocative power -- the story of tragic, emotionally devastated Maggie, "the Barnes woman with all the problems, and daughter Hattie, a child struggling to rind a place for herself in her damaged mother's heart.

Entranced by the cover photo (mindful of my mother and me!) I devoured Sights Unseen. A child's wistful tale of her longing for a "normal" mother -- and her final understanding and reconciliation with her.
