She is restless -- not the daughter she feels her mother wants.

When puberty hits, an abrupt shift in fate has Lily on her way to England to care for her aging grandmother. There, she experiences life in all its ambiguity, until she is called home to face a future she thought she had escaped.Thomass prose is intimate, elegant and devastatingly funny- her engrossing story of Lily Piper tells us something about how we make sense of the future when the future is something we can hardly imagine.Reading by Lightning, Joan Thomass long-awaited first novel, took readers by storm.

A year after its publication, it had won numerous awards, found a large readership, and been selected by popular vote for On the Same Page, Manitobas one book reading experience. Goose Lane is pleased to reissue Reading by Lightning in this readers guide edition, complete with an afterword, an interview with the author, extended biographical notes, and more.
