Wiley Cash, who received his PhD from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette has been making waves in the literary world. His debut novel, "A Land More Kind Than Home," was hailed as "a powerfully moving debut that reads as if Cormac McCarthy decided to rewrite Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird" (Richmond Times Dispatch). He followed up the success of that book with "This Dark Road to Mercy," "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."
"This Dark Road to Mercy" (you can read Louisiana Book News' review here) is now available as an ebook download for $1.99.
Here's the book's description:
"After their mother's unexpected death, twelve-year-old Easter and her six-year-old sister Ruby are adjusting to life in foster care when their errant father, Wade, suddenly appears. Since Wade signed away his legal rights, the only way he can get his daughters back is to steal them away in the night. Brady Weller, the girls' court-appointed guardian, begins looking for Wade, and he quickly turns up unsettling information linking Wade to a recent armored car heist, one with a whopping $14.5 million missing. But Brady Weller isn't the only one hunting the desperate father. Robert Pruitt, a shady and mercurial man nursing a years-old vendetta, is also determined to find Wade and claim his due. Narrated by a trio of alternating voices, 'This Dark Road to Mercy' is a story about the indelible power of family and the primal desire to outrun a past that refuses to let go."
