Armed with a gothic and spiritual sensibility reminiscent of Flannery O'Connor, Melinda Haynes weaves her characters' lives and stories into an unforgettable tapestry of sorrow and salvation.
Melinda Haynes' Mother of Pearl was an unexpected sensation, chosen for Oprah's book club and selling more than half a million copies in hardcover. Now with the same stunning language, Haynes returns to the country she knows so well - the backwoods South of the 1960's - to tell the story of a mysterious town and its inhabitants, each with their own affections and joys, each with their own secrets.
