A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The premier work by a bright new talent, Divining Rod is a searing novel that examines those passions that move us to desperation and violence. On a blistering July morning in Alabama, Sam Holladay jabs a gun into the heart of his neighbor, Simon Bell, and pulls the trigger. His neighbors wonder how this benevolent schooteacher could turn into a killer, but Sam knows this tragedy was inevitable. Through a series of flashbacks, a story of complicated love and tender emotions is unveiled, chronicling the blossoming romance between Sam's reckless young bride, Delia, and the lonely, hapless Simon, and bringing the action full circle to the heartbreaking events of that fateful summer day. Michael Knight's innovative first novel is a gem that shines with the promise of a brilliant career for one of America's most gifted young authors.
