Welcome to Spencerville, Virginia, 1977. A time when teenagers roamed wild and free. When sons worshipped God, loved their mothers, and feared their fathers. And when eight-year-old Rocky still worshipped his older brother, Paul--sixteen and full of rebel cool--who was happy to have his younger brother as his sidekick, until one day things went terribly wrong and Paul disappeared.
Seven years later, Rocky, now a teenager himself, must reckon with the past after a mysterious double murder brings terror and suspicion to their small town, and to their broken family.
I am a huge fan of southern literature and came across this book. I have lived far away from Virginia in “occupied territory” up north for many years now. I made my purchase without fully realizing that the author was from my hometown. It didn’t take long for me to connect the dots! I enjoyed every page.
Loved this book! Couldn't put it down.
