The Restless Heart by Elizabeth Isola
The century and I were thirteen and Ross was eight the year Dad decided to take the family to California.
Much more than a coming of age story, The Restless Heart captures the sights, sounds, and attitudes of America in the first years of the 20th century, before the onslaught of the first World War. Journey with Tim and his family as they travel from the familiar surroundings of Maine to California, where they will be tested to the limits of their endurance.
Filled with humor and insight, a tale of innocence lost and manhood gained, The Restless Heart is the last known complete novel by Elizabeth Isola, author of Jamie, republished by Warner House Press in 2020.
