Reviews

"Once again, Robert Morgan's true landscape is, as with all great writers, the peaks and valleys, the long and winding paths, of the human heart. What a writer, and what a novel!" --Ron Rash, author of Nothing Gold Can Stay

"In The Road From Gap Creek [Morgan] delivers another powerhouse novel of his people, with their virtues and failings, wins and losses, loves and sorrows." --Daniel Woodrell, author of Winter's Bone and The Maid's Version

"Morgan pens an eloquent story of stoicism and pain, endurance and courage, ending as all life will, with death and birth. A moving, lyrical saga from a time so distant, yet so near." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Robert Morgan returns to us with a much-awaited sequel to Gap Creek and the fate of the next generation of its unforgettable characters, now facing the tolls of World War II and the changing of their pocket of America. Oprah adored the original, and in this further telling in their distinctive voices, you will see why." --Ivan Doig, author of The Bartender's Tale

"This novel shines with a subtle brilliance . . . Morgan has produced another stellar novel."--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Robert Morgan remains the consummate storyteller . . . This book must be read for its broad, sagacious wit as well as for its power to convince us of extraordinary courage seen in ordinary life." --Elizabeth Cox, author of The Ragged Way People Fall Out of Love
