Dear Daughter: A Novel - Elizabeth E. Little

pretty far along with this, now; it reminds me of two books I recently enjoyed: it has a sassy style like Helen Fitzgerald's Viral (though the young, female first-person narrator is hiding a lot of pain and unresolved issues behind the glib cynicalness)--a book I loved--attached to a plot that's more like Hester Young's The Gates of Evangeline (a whiff of Gothic; family secrets; attractive men who may not be good for the heroine--no ghosts in Dear Daughter so far, though...well, no actual ghosts)--a book I loved even more. all that, and the book carves its own unique feel, its own distinct Mystery. hard to say if it will match those other two books, but it's workin' hard. I like it.
