And monsters are just what Wilhelmina discovers when she starts digging into the history of her town in upstate New York. Willie goes into a slump after a disastrous affair with her college professor, when she finds out that her mother has lied to her all these years about who her father is. Her mother figures her revelation might get Willie fired up to do her own research, and, sure enough, through letters, diaries, and town gossip Willie begins to uncover some monstrous relatives. A surprising number of them seem to be characters from James Fenimore Cooper novels. Ann Marie Lee brings each character to life. Her enthusiastic willingness to embrace the myriad cast members--from Jamaican slave to grief-crazed Indian--makes her a narrator to keep your eye out for in the future. D.G.
