THE TENDER MERCY OF ROSES
Genre: Mainstream, General Mainstream Fiction
The spiritual qualities of this book make it hard to put down. But readers who do not believe in spirits or ghosts may not enjoy it as much. The connection between nature, animals and the human spirit is palpable and will make readers second-guess their place in the world.
The death of a young girl on the rodeo circuit unleashes family secrets for Jo Beth Dawson, an alcoholic ex-cop who has returned home after a five-year absence. The spirit of the young girl inspires and invigorates Dawson and forces her to put down the bottle long enough to avenge the girl’s death. Assisting Dawson in her quest is the victim’s father, Titus Jones, whose love for his daughter prompts him to go to great lengths to bring her soul to rest. (GALLERY, May., 336 pp., $22.99)
