NC native Heather Adams joins the growing Raleigh community of talented authors. The winner of the 2016 James Still Fiction Prize, she shares her debut novel, Maranatha Road, on Thursday, September 14, at 7 pm. A mother's refusal to accept the truth about her missing son sets off a hunt for the truth. Maranatha Road was named winner of the Knoxville Writers' Guild Contest prize.
From staff member, Michelle: "Maranatha Road is brimming with hushed secrets that will seem familiar if you’ve ever caught wind of the quiet gossip that flows around a small town. Debut author Heather Bell Adams delivers an emotional punch in this moving tale of two strong-on-the-outside-but-tender-within women individually trying to figure out a way forward after tragedy strikes. I fell in love with the deeply-drawn characters and wanted to give their hands a reassuring squeeze. The gorgeous prose and rich description of life in the NC mountains may inspire you to pack your bags for a road trip."
Heather will be in conversation with Kim Church, author of Byrd.
