Summary
"In 1937 Montana, fourteen-year-old Houston "Huck" Finn finds a dead body in a local creek and steals the man's rare Lindbergh flight watch. Huck is an aspiring aviator, working to build his own airplane-a secret he has kept from his God-fearing mother. His cousin, Annelise, arrives from Los Angeles for a long stay with his family, and Huck is initially wary until he learns she has had flight lessons. As his airplane takes shape, and the young cousins avidly follow Amelia Earhart's voyage around the equator, so too does Huck's understanding of the world and his place in it-in particular the tension between heaven and earth, age and youth, tradition and the coming future, that stresses the bonds of both his and Annelise's families. And then there's the matter of the watch, which it turns out the dead man's cohort of gangsters would very much like back."--Provided by publisher.

Summary
"While recovering from a traumatic head injury, Polly Schuster struggles to find her way through one chaotic week in July when her entire extended family descends upon the bucolic town of Livingston, Montana for their annual gathering. As she contends with a series of unexpected events and the haunting echoes of her past inconveniently resurfacing as a result of her injury, Polly soon learns that her perception of her family and their life together is far from objective. Eventually Polly comes to understand the truths of her tragic, talented clan and the strange events of one year of her childhood in New York that continue to echo through to her current life"-- Provided by publisher.
