    By Ron Rash

    Read by Merritt Hicks

    A lyrical, heart-rending tale from Ron Rash, the bestselling author of Serena.

    "Ron Rash uses language with such apparently effortless skill that it is as though he found words in his barn as a child and has been training them to fit his needs ever since. There's not much he doesn't know about humans in turmoil, or his region, a place where nothing ever changes until of a sudden it does and often too much. Rash throws a big shadow now and it's only going to get bigger and soon." - Daniel Woodrell, author of Winter's Bone
