"An elegant coming-of-age story that brings real heart to the American heartland. The book may be set during World War II, but the questions it asks―about love, loyalty, and the meaning of life―are timeless ones." ―Elliott Holt, author of You Are One of Them

As her Wisconsin community endures a long season of drought and feels the shockwaves of World War II, fifteen-year-old Cielle endures a more personal calamity: the unexpected death of her father. On a balmy summer afternoon, she finds him hanging in the barn―the start of a dark secret that threatens her family’s livelihood. A war rages elsewhere, while in the deceptive calm of the American heartland, Cielle’s family contends with a new reality and fights not to be undone.

A stunning debut, The Driest Season creates a moving portrait of Cielle’s struggle to make sense of her father’s time on earth, and of her own. With wisdom and grit, Kenny has fashioned a deeply affecting story of a young woman discovering loss, heartache, and―finally―hope.

ACTIVITY FROM AROUND THE WEB

A father’s death leaves a daughter seeking answers and a return to normal life in this impressive debut novel.

Kenny’s thoughtful, finely crafted work is an eloquent reminder that the breadth of a world matters less than the depth of a character.
