A disarmingly involving portrait of a family struggling to stay together through the Great Depression, The Cape Ann is an unforgettable story of life from a child’s-eye view.

Lark Erhardt, the six-year-old narrator of The Cape Ann, and her fiercely independent mother dream of owning their own house; they have their hearts set on the Cape Ann, chosen from a house catalog. But when Lark’s father’s gambling threatens the down payment her mother has worked so hard to save, Lark’s mother takes matters into her own indomitable hands.
Faith Sullivan is the author of several novels including Gardenias, What a Woman Must Do, and Good Night, Mr. Wadehouse. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband, Dan.

Editorial Reviews

“The Cape Ann is the first-person story of a child’s loss of innocence, of a growing awareness of just how complex life can be.”—Washington Post Book World“The childish narrator is sweet and touching, without being sappy, and we believe her every recollection of life in a small Minnesota town at the end of the Depression.”—New York Times Book Review   “Sullivan has written a fascinating, original novel.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune“Funny, sensible, at times achingly sad … Sullivan leads us into the heart of an American childhood.”—Chicago Tribune
