Summary

Summary

Selected for the June 2012 Indie Next List

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.

“Deliciously dark and dangerous.” O, The Oprah Magazine
“Robert Goolrick vividly evokes two lovers doomed by their place and their past.” Richmond Times-Dispatch
“[An] unforgettable story of lost and displaced souls in search of identity, acceptance and belonging…Goolrick (A Reliable Wife) masterfully ratchets up the tension, while evocative sensory detail and spiritual overtones infuse the emotional landscape of a powerful, climactic novel that seeks to define and explore the meaning of love and goodness.” Shelf Awareness
“Goolrick is a writer with a big heart and a deft hand for drama. I look forward to whatever he pens next.” Washington Post
