A riveting new novel (Kirkus Reviews) about finding evil close to home and how far a woman will go to protect her family: Named one of The Top 10 Things We Love This Week by Entertainment Weekly. Growing up in the 1960s in one of Californias most prominent political families, Natalie Askedahl worshipped her big brother, Bobby, a sensitive math prodigy who served as her protector and confidante. But after Bobby left home at sixteen on a Princeton scholarship, something changed between them. Now that Natalie has a career and a family of her own, her only real regret is losing Bobby. Then, a bomb explodes in the middle of her seemingly ideal life. Her oldest daughter is on the Stanford campus when one person is killed and another maimed. Other attacks follow across California. Frightened for her family, Natalie grows obsessed with the case of the so-called Cal Bomber, until she makes an unthinkable discovery: the bombers manifesto reads alarmingly like the last letter she has from Bobby. Unsure of whom to sacrifice and whom to protect, Natalie is confronted with a terrible choice. As her life splits irrevocably into before and after, she begins to learn that some of the most dangerous things in the world are the stories we tell ourselves. An intense, provocative novel…Golden State will resonate with anyone whos ever watched a loved one self-destruct (People). As Los Angeles Magazine said about author Stephanie Kegan: Youve got our attention.
