    Working in the stylistic terrain of Amy Greene and Bonnie Jo Campbell, this mesmerizing debut by Julia Franks is the story of a woman intrigued by the possibility of change, escape, and reproductive choice — stalked by a Bible-haunted man who fears his government and stakes his integrity upon an older way of life. In this spellbinding Southern story set in 1939, Franks bares the myths and mysteries that modernity can’t quite dispel.
    Julia Franks has roots in the Appalachian Mountains and has spent years kayaking the rivers and creeks of Tennessee, North Carolina, and West Virginia. She lives in Atlanta, where she teaches literature and runs Loose Canon, a web service that fosters free-choice reading in the classroom.
