Clara Callan

International Fiction

It is the late 1930s and two sisters, Clara and Nora Callan, face the future with hope and uncertainty. Clara, a 30-ish schoolteacher, lives in small-town Ontario and longs for love and adventure. Nora, her flighty, gorgeous younger sister, escapes to New York and becomes a minor radio soap celebrity. Told through the sisters' diaries and letters, Clara Callan vividly brings the two sisters to life in a world struggling through the Depression, and with the growing threat of fascism in Europe. Violence, deception and loss, it seems, are never far away from both sisters as they journey from innocence to experience.
