Schroder : a novel

A lyrical and deeply affecting novel recounting the seven days a father spends on the road with his daughter after kidnapping her during a parental visit. Eric Schroder brings his daughter, Meadow, to Lake Champlain, Vermont, in an attempt to outrun the authorities amid a heated custody battle with his wife-- who will soon discover that her husband is not who he says he is. A deftly imagined novel on the many identities we take on in our lives-- those we are born with and those we construct for ourselves.
