Helen Phillips (Author)
DescriptionMolly is a paleobotanist who spends her days working at a fossil quarry where she sometimes unearths artifacts that defy understanding, including a controversial Bible that has recently attracted gawkers and conspiracy theorists. By night, she cares for her two young children -- four-year-old Viv and one-year-old Ben -- while her musician husband is away on tour. She's frazzled, sleep-deprived, and it seems the edges of her reality blur more each day.
