Early one morning, Lidia Raven, mother of teenage twins, awakens to the sound of a sputtering airplane engine in the distance. After she and her girls miraculously survive the crash that destroys their home, they’re taken in by Lidia’s friend, Polly, a neighbor who lives alone on a sprawling estate. But Lidia has other problems. Her husband has left her for another man, she’s lost her job, and she fears more bad news is on the way when she discovers a connection between her and Tina Calderara, the pilot who crashed into her home. In the months following the crash, Lidia plunges into a mystery that upends every aspect of her life, forcing her to rethink everything she thinks she knows.

Time’s Tyranny

“Jean P. Moore’s Time’s Tyranny brims with images of life’s simultaneity. Nature flourishes and dwindles, love heartens and crushes, joy and peace sustain and crumble. Birth, love, death under the watchful eye of the tyrant, time.” (Publisher) National Book Award nominee for poetry, Maureen McLean has called Time’s Tyranny “a book of memory and swift reckonings” and says, “Moore’s work is simultaneously sensual and astringent.” This is a poet who “combines in perfect balance a lyric gift with meditative inclination.” Poet Judith Baumel calls Time’s Tyranny a “wise and lovely collection,” enabling readers “to experience both the tyranny and the magic of time.”
