Publisher's Summary

After 25 years in prison for a senseless juvenile murder, Gordon Loomis returns to a changed world. His old neighborhood is blighted by drug dealers and neglected property. His brother, Dennis, a successful oral surgeon, tries to help but is torn by his own fears and failings. Gordon's persistent visitor, the flamboyant Delores Dufault yearns to be part of his new life, but he is as afraid of relationships as he is of being sent back to jail. Also drawn to Gordon's decency and vulnerability is 13-year-old Jada Fossum, an unloved child of the streets. Her desperate struggle to survive threatens the fragile balance that is Gordon's freedom.

Graced with Morris's signature command of dialogue, her talent for creating vivid, unforgettable characters, and her masterful use of suspense, A Hole in the Universe is a riveting story of forgiveness and redemption.

    "A Hole in the Universe"

    Though the outcome was somewhat predictable this is a satisfying read. I felt as though I've met these people somewhere. There are no good or is no bad guys, just people trying to deal with the "human condition". I was a little sad to reach the end.
