In his phenomenal debut novel a More Kind MOBI #241 mesmerizing literary thriller about the bond between two brothers and the evil they face in a small North Carolina town author Wiley Cash displays a remarkable talent for lyrical powerfully emotional storytelling A Land Mo You show me a woman who calls herself a Christian up in these parts and I'll show you a woman who knows how to heal It ain't un Christian to make do when you're poor I can promise you that You just show me a Christian woman up here and I'll show you a woman who knows what to pick and where to find it If you don't know how to heal yourself then you don't know how to live when times are hard ahhhh another salt of the earth take care of your own business kind of bookand another great one at thatthis definitely reminds me of that tom franklin brand of crime fiction but this one is somehow even grim than Crooked Letter Crooked Letter in the best way of course here we have a story of a preacher come to a small town in north carolina with a past full of sins and a hankering to form his own little cult of snake handlers and affliction healers; covering up the church windows with newspaper and ostensibly leading his congregation on the path to glory speaking in tongues and laying on of handsexcept sometimes behind those newspaper covered windows people will dieincluding a teenaged boy; mute and somewhere on the autism spectrum who has seen something he just shouldn't have seen and will be healed so hard he will end up deadthe story is told through the narration of three characters; the brother of the deceased boy the sheriff of madison county and the elderly adelaide lyle who knows what the preacher is but is powerless against him she has managed one small victory in taking the children out of the church and schooling them herself every week but that is a small victory and cold comfort when christopherstump dies in that very churchthe most powerful element of this story is the transformation of the family after stump dies particularly stump and jess' father's transformation this is deep heartbreaking stuff here it is a story of powerlessness and the way that we rarely have the opportunity to do the right thing because of lack of knowledge or courage or proof it is about small town clannishnessand old grudges and the difficulties of seeing the big picture in the midst of a crisiseventually it is about healing but the healing comes at a great price and leaves a permanent hurtdefinitely worth reading and if penguin UK weren't so stingy i would be reading his new one through netgalley right nowdammitcome to my blog

doc A Land More Kind Than Home

A Land More Kind Than HomeRe Kind than Home is a modern masterwork of Southern fiction reminiscent of the writings of John Hart Down River Tom Franklin Crooked Letter Crooked Letter Ron Rash Serena and Pete Dexter Paris Trout one that is likely to be held in the same enduring A Land PDF esteem as su A Land More Kind than Home by Wiley Cash is a 2012 William Morrow publication Deeply affecting and very impressive debut novel Death is to lose the earth you know for greater knowing; to lose the life you have for a greater life; to leave the friends you loved for greater loving; to find a land kind than home large than earth Thomas Wolfe This book fits into both of my 2020 reading challenges which is to read authors I haven’t tried yet and reading books everyone has read but me I had a feeling I was going to like the book and the author but both exceeded my expectationsTold from the triple narratives of nine year old Jess Hall Adelaide Lyle a midwife and the small North Carolina town Sheriff Clem Barefield the story chronicles the rise of Carson Chambliss pastor of River Road Church of Christ and the hold he has over the community The church zeroing in a specific Bible passage twists it into a circus of snake handling speaking in tongues and the drinking of poison After Adelaide sees a woman die during one of the 'worhip' services she dares to challenge the pastor and steps up to protect the county’s children from him and the strange goings on at the church Jess looks over his brother Christopher nicknamed ‘Stump’ who is mute and autistic But the boys have a habit of snooping and eventually they see something they shouldn’t have Their mother Julie hoping Stump can be healed allows the pastor to ‘help’ him The results of Julie’s faith and desperation will prompt Sheriff Barefield to start poking around in the life of the enigmatic Carson Chambliss This string of events will erupt into a tragic but fateful turn of events I was sitting on the edge of my seat watching as the clouds build into a powerful storm knowing there will casualties but unable to tear myself away The writing is exemplary the atmosphere thick with dread and the characters vivid and vibrant Southern Fiction is always compelling but it takes a special talent to capture the right tone Cash employs a stark literary prose which is uite effective Occasionally it was a bit too polished for this premise but that's a minor flaw Clem is so uiet and introspective and his pain is haunting and palpable Yet it wasn’t until the bitter end that I began to feel a deeper respect for himJess was the conduit by which the events that transpire are connected His character is one that inspires sympathy but of the three narratives his trials are yet to come which doesn't allow him much room to develop emotionally I would like to hear from him again someday though It was Addie's courage and morality that made the biggest impression on me It’s a good thing to see that people can heal after they’ve been broken they can change and become something different from what they were before The irony is thick as the story winds around coming full circle Fate and redemption are the most pronounced themes but love and true faith are also very strong messages that shone through the murky mess bringing the promise of better days ahead A brilliant debut So glad I finally got around to reading this one 4 stars
