Keeper of the Night
FICTION - Young Adult - Set on Guam

Keeper of the Night by Kimberly Willis Holt by Kimberly Willis Holt Kimberly Willis Holt

Synopsis:

A National Book Award-winning Author - Isabel's mother died peacefully. At least that's what Isabel likes to think, since no one will talk about the truth.

Kimberly Willis Holt has written a painfully beautiful story, set on the lush island of Guam, about a young woman's struggle to protect her family after her mother's suicide.

At once disturbing and honest, devastating and hopeful, Isabel's voice is aching to be heard - because some wounds can't heal until the truth has finally been spoken.
