About this deal

Author Lori Roy’s debut novel follows Arthur Scott and his family as they pack up their city life in Detroit, Michigan and move to a small town in Kansas. In addition to all the above the author dwells with the acceptance of spousal abuse in a small community by its citizens and the church. And much to Celia's surprise, "the closer he gets to home, the faster he drives, as if he is suddenly regretting all those years away.

Broadband data is based on information provided by the major fixed internet service providers in the UK, including Virgin Media and BT. Once they get back to Kansas things are not any better, and in fact much worse because the problems they face here are personal; family secrets, some that have been been buried for 20 years, others more recent.

The author's use of an image of a statue without hands struck me rather powerfully as a literary device signifying how the exposure and recognition of prejudices stopped much of their power to harm. Even though there was plenty of suspense to keep me turning the pages, I found that I enjoyed the unfolding details of the characters as much as I did the unraveling of the multiple twists. One of the chief mourners was the Duke of Hamilton, a close family friend, who led the funeral procession through Hamilton, and read The Lesson.

As I've said in the past, I absolutely hate any type of spoiler, so I'm not going to discuss what the family secrets in this novel involve.Figures for relationship status do not include those aged under 16, or those family members aged 16-18 who are in full-time education. But Bent Road is no place for idylls, not when Eve's death remains unsolved according to the law and not the town, when her consensus murderer lives among them, both part of and at a remove from the Scotts, determined to destroy those around him and especially himself. The marketing agents are pleased to invite early internal inspection of this deceptively spacious 2 bedroom semi-detached villa, centrally located in Hamilton, a short distance from Hamilton . For a time, regrets do seem to fall away as Arthur and his newly arrived family reacquaint themselves with his mother, Reesa, and sister, Ruth, as Roy describes with patience and superior skill.
