Ellie Lucan’s about as far as she can get from the screwed-up teenager she used to be. She’s got a doctorate, her husband’s a prominent academic, and their children are excelling at the local Montessori school. When she loses her teaching job, however, she packs up her two sons to spend the summer in her hometown. She finds her mother suffering from dementia and the house in squalor, and she is forced to confront small town prejudice towards her biracial sons. As Ellie is drawn back into the community, the strain on her marriage intensifies and she is forced to decide where her loyalties lie.<_o3a_p>

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great read, hard to put down! Sometimes you know a book is going to be great by the first page you read! This is the case with In the Field. It was hard book to put down. Even after reading this book, I found myself thinking of the characters. I can't wait to read more from Claire Tacon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In The Field Loved this book. The story touches on themes of personal identity, relationships, emotional growth, feeling like an outsider and coming to terms with your past. The writing allows us to get inside the characters and feel that we know them and understand them and so can forgive them their flaws. An excellent read. Hard to believe it's a first novel. Looking forward to more from this author.
