In 1944, three young men from a small town in West Virginia
are among the American forces participating in D-Day,
changing the fortunes of the war with one bold stroke. How
is that moment aboard a Navy ship as it barrels toward the
Normandy shore related to the death of an old man in an
Appalachian nursing home seventy-two years later?
In Sorrow Road, the latest mystery from Pulitzer
Prize-winning writer Julia Keller, two storiesâ€”one set in
the turbulent era of World War II and one in the present
dayâ€”are woven together to create a piercingly poignant tale
of memory and family, of love and murder.
Bell Elkins, prosecuting attorney in Ackerâ€™s Gap, West
Virginia, is asked by an old acquaintance to look into the
death of her beloved father in an Alzheimerâ€™s care facility.
Did he die of natural causesâ€”or was something more sinister
to blame? And thatâ€™s not the only issue with which Bell is
grappling: Her daughter Carla has moved back home. But
somethingâ€™s not right. Carla is desperately hiding a secret.
Once again, past and present, good and evil, and revenge and
forgiveness clash in a riveting story set in the shattered
landscape of Ackerâ€™s Gap, where the skies can seem dark even
at high noon, and the mountains lean close to hear the
whispered lament of the people trapped in their shadow.
