Synopsis : 'We never should've gone up there...' One Sunday, nine-years-old Jess Hall watches in horror as his autistic brother is smothered during a healing service in the mountains of North Carolina. The unimaginable violence that follows must be untangled by a local sheriff with his own tragic past. "A Land More Kind Than Home" is a spellbinding, heartbreaking story about cruelty and innocence, and the failure of religion and family to protect a child. It is a novel thick with stories and characters connected by faith, infidelity, and a sense of hope that is both tragic and unforgettable.
Critique: "I think this could be the beginning of a long, fruitful career" Ernest J. Gaines, author of A LESSON BEFORE DYING and THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MISS JANE PITTMAN "One of the most powerful novels I have ever read" Fred Chappell, author of I AM ONE OF YOU FOREVER and BRIGHTEN THE CORNER WHERE YOU ARE "Electrifying debut" Financial Times "Cash's debut novel (A Land More Kind Than Home) is a chilling descent into the world of religious frenzy in small town North Carolina. The languid atmosphere seduces, and Cash's fine first effort pulls the reader into a shadowy, tormented world where wolves prowl in the guise of sheep." Publishers' Weekly
