LoveReading Expert Review of A Land More Kind Than Home

Winner of the CWA John Creasey New Blood Dagger 2012.

CWA Judges' comment: “An evocative, absorbing slice of Americana, this well-constructed Southern-gothic tale has dark touches of Faulkner, and highlights the dangers of all-powerful religious belief and fervour.”

 

Wiley Cash said "As an American writer, it's a shock and a real honor to win an award in a genre with such a proud British tradition."

A Land More Kind Than Home Synopsis

We never should've gone up there ...' One Sunday, nine-year-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.
