Read full description of the books:Rapeseed is a wonderful coming-of-age novel about an extraordinary woman. It's a more standard coming-of-age story of a teen-age boy, and a more unusual coming-of-age of an American family abroad... because families mature like this too. It is a many-colored, multi-cultural novel. From a small Kansas town, Carolann Cooper is a synesthete with blended senses. She sees her letters and numbers and turbulent memories in color. Her family's move to England cracks open her complicated history and exposes secrets she's been keeping with her husband -- and from him as well -- just as her teenage son enjoys new freedoms and begins taking dangerous risks. Carolann must urgently figure out who she really is, to reconcile her own past with her family's future.
