The Kiss of Kin, Settle's second and highly acclaimed novel, centers on the funeral, and last testament of Anna Mary Passmore. Drawn back to the Southern home place in West Virginia, members of the Passmore clan, all of whom nurse visions that the matriarch's bequests will solve their problems, grapple with the various ties that bind them and with the disturbing appearance of an unexpected heir. This mid century novel offers a compelling view of Southern women, as well as a sample of Settle's early writing.
