About this book
With America quietly gearing up for war in the Middle East, 20-year old Tassie, from the plains of the Midwest, goes to university in the hope of escaping the complex world of culture and politics. As the year unfolds, she is led to new and formative experiences, and the future bursts forth in dramatic and shocking ways.
Twenty-year-old Tassie Keltjin, a 'half-Jewish' farmer's daughter from the plains of the Midwest, has come to university. When she takes a job as a part-time nanny to a couple who seem at once mysterious and glamorous, Tassie is drawn into the life of their newly-adopted child and increasingly complicated household.
