“Tuck is a genius”—Los Angeles Times Winner of the National Book Award, Lily Tuck follows her critically-acclaimed novel I Married You For Happiness with an elegantly constructed story collection about lives tethered to the past and the unexpected encounters that threaten to unmoor them. The House at Belle Fontaine is at once unexpected and familiar, and wholly memorable for its spare depiction of characters on the brink of transformation. The powerfully intimate stories within The House at Belle Fontaine span the better part of the twentieth century and almost every continent, laying bare apprehensions, passions, secrets, and tragedies that resonate across time and space. In crisp, spare, and penetrating prose, Lily Tuck unveils and suppresses personal truths as her characters navigate exotic locales and immediate emotional territory: an artist learns that her deceased ex-husband had an especially illicit affair seventeen years before his death; a young couple living in Thailand worries about the mental stability of their best friend, a U. S. army captain; on a ship bound for Antarctica, a retired couple strains to hold together their forty-year-old marriage; and a French family flees to Lima in the 1940s with devastating consequences for their daughter’s young nanny. The House at Belle Fontaine reveals the extraordinary in the everyday and the perpetuity of the past. With a deft and expert hand, Tuck excavates the opportunities that arise from loss, and the moments that knock lives into a collision course and an uncertain future.

? A poignant and heart warming story of the home-front struggle to present soldiers with simple and profound kindness during WW II. ? One of devoted and selfless giving by the grateful residents of Bellefontaine and Logan County, Ohio, to hundreds of thousands of soldiers passing through town on the New York Central Railroad during WW II. ? A warmly defining testament to a town and a region honoring the brave sons and daughters of America who went to war.During 1942, a group of civic-minded wives of railroad men began providing free lunch to every soldier passing through town on the railroad. With war rationing on, the people of Bellefontaine and Logan County, Ohio, sacrificed their food and gave their time to feed our nation's military. For 45 months day-in and day-out; week after week, around the clock, over 700,000 soldiers were nourished. The food was served by volunteers on the Columbus Avenue platforms of the New York Central Railroad.The Canteen became the home-front rallying point for the community. Ladies all over town and in the rural areas made baked goods, cooked food and volunteered at the Canteen, greeting each soldier with a smile and a kind word. Life for everyone at home during the war meant daily sacrifice. It was all done for the men and women in uniform who were making the greater sacrifice. They served soldiers passing through on furlough, troop trains, hospital trains carrying wounded soldiers home, and even the POW trains. Given a touch of home in a time of terrible world events, the soldiers derived a powerful sense of appreciation and purpose by the simple gestures of total strangers.
