Review: 'A Land More Kind Than Home'
Published on Friday, July 20, 2012 - 9:18am
Wiley Cash has a gift for storytelling! In his first novel, A Land More Kind Than Home, Cash tells the story of how an evangelical pastor and his church affect a community in the mountains of North Carolina. The novel, about faith, trust and the questioning of long held beliefs, is told from the points of view of a little boy, an old woman and the local sheriff. Complete with snake handlers and a mystery surrounding the death of a child, reading this novel is like sitting on a front porch and listening to your little brother, your grandmother or your father tell a story.
A New York Times bestseller, A Land More Kind Than Home has been nominated for the Gold Dagger Award and the John Creasy Memorial Dagger award by the Crime Writer's Association.
