Summary: "Set in an isolated town founded decades ago by a charismatic cult leader, Heartbreaker is the story of a mysterious woman who abruptly disappears, and those who try to find her. At the intersection of The Handmaid's Tale and Twin Peaks, this is the wildly imaginative American debut of a prize-winning Canadian author. Why can't a woman be more than one person in a lifetime? It's been months since Billie Jean Fontaine left her bedroom, trapped alone by grief. But one night, out of the blue, she emerges and announces that she's going into town--but she never returns. In their remote northern town, which has been cut off from the world for decades, her husband and daughter undertake a frantic search for the beloved and beautiful Billie Jean. She is the only outsider ever to arrive in this strange town, sixteen years earlier. And now the residents wonder: has Billie Jean become the first person to leave, too? Told from three unforgettable perspectives--her daughter, her dog, and her mysterious friend--Heartbreaker is the electrifying portrait of a woman who has risked everything for freedom and love, and the secrets she leaves in her wake"--
