McAuliffe Book Discussion: Leaving Lucy Pear by Anna Solomon

Thursday, March 21, 2019

One night in 1917 Beatrice Haven sneaks out of her uncle’s house on Cape Ann, Massachusetts, leaves her newborn baby at the foot of a pear tree, and watches as another woman claims the infant as her own. When she returns to her uncle’s house ten years later, seeking a refuge from her unhappy life, she is inadvertently reunited with the woman who has been raising her abandoned child, Lucy Pear—a bright, bold girl with secrets of her own. This novel questions class, freedom, and the meaning of family.
