About

Overview

Arrowood is the most ornate and grand of the historical houses that line the Mississippi River in southern Iowa. And it’s where Arden Arrowood’s younger twin sisters vanished on her watch twenty years ago. Arrowood is a powerful novel that examines how our lives are shaped by memory, a thrilling novel in which nothing is as it seems.
