Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1948, a mysterious and charismatic man arrives in a small Virginia town carrying two suitcases—one contains his worldly possessions, the other is full of money. He soon inserts himself into the town’s daily life, taking a job in the local butcher shop and befriending the owner and his wife and their son. But the passion that develops between the man and the wife of the town’s wealthiest citizen sets in motion a series of events that not only upset the quiet town but threaten to destroy both him and the woman.

Review:

"In this latest romantic novel from Goolrick, WWII veteran Charlie Beale takes up residence in a tiny Virginia town in an effort to 'head out to wonderful' and discover the unexpected. The unexpected occurs in the form of Sylvan Glass, the adolescent bride of the town's richest and meanest citizen. Charlie's doomed quest to possess Sylvan is the novel's driving force — and this is capably rendered by Norman Dietz, who offers up strong and unique voices for almost all the characters. Sylvan's is the only character that ever comes across as unnatural or inconsistent, but even this wholly keeps with the story: she grew up in a holler, but tries to erase her country accent by emulating the measured dialect of film and radio actresses. In all, this is a first-rate audio production. An Algonquin hardcover. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, A Reliable Wife, returns with another suspenseful fast-paced gothic story of love, lust, betrayal, and revenge.
