The Last Ballad

$12.99$1.99Audiobook: 12.99 (Whispersync)

Christina Baker Kline, author of A Piece of the World and Orphan Train recommends this. From the publisher: "The New York Times bestselling author of the celebrated A Land More Kind Than Home returns with this eagerly awaited new novel, inspired by actual events. While the dirty, hazardous job at the mill earns Ella May a paltry nine dollars for seventy-two hours of work each week, it’s the only opportunity she has. When the union leaflets begin circulating, Ella May has a taste of hope, a yearning for the better life the organizers promise. Seventy-five years later, Ella May’s daughter Lilly, now an elderly woman, tells her nephew about his grandmother and the events that transformed their family. Intertwining myriad voices, Wiley Cash brings to life the heartbreak and bravery of the now forgotten struggle of the labor movement in early twentieth-century America."

Author:

I read <a href=https://modernmrsdarcy.com/quick-lit-january-2018/>my first Wiley Cash novel</a> earlier this year. I've been meaning to read him for too long, and I intend to read more. From the publisher: "Hailed as 'a powerfully moving debut that reads as if Cormac McCarthy decided to rewrite Harper Lee's <em>To Kill a Mockingbird</em>' (<em>Richmond Times Dispatch</em>)—returns with a resonant novel of love and atonement, blood and vengeance, set in western North Carolina, involving two young sisters, a wayward father, and an enemy determined to see him pay for his sins. Narrated by a trio of alternating voices, <em>This Dark Road to Mercy</em> is a story about the indelible power of family and the primal desire to outrun a past that refuses to let go."
