Lessons in Disguise
by Kate Porter
Lessons in Disguise, a novel, follows the journey of a handcrafted book from its printing in Virginia, 1820, to its eventual destination in California, 1975. As the book is passed from woman, to man, to child, the owners find within its pages parables, fables, and practical lessons that help shape their lives. Told in eight voices this book reads as though it were an intimate memoir.
