Abstract

After the death of Liz Avelar’s father, her distant half-brother Daniel returns home with his mysterious new wife Caroline in tow. When the three learn that Liz’s father has cut Daniel out of the will, Liz begs the two to stay behind and help her run the family apricot and walnut orchard. Set in Sunnyvale, California in 1968 at the tail end of the valley of heart’s delight and the start of Silicon Valley, what follows is a California gothic tale about mothering, trusting, haunting, and being home.
