The Cove

by Ron Rash

An evocative, bleak novel brightened by interludes of escape, hope and possibilities of a better life. A beautifully written portrayal of a North Carolina community infected with prejudice and superstition. The story haunts the reader long after the turning of the last page.

Slidell if he kept bringing them to town and one Saturday she and
Hank had been hit by rotten eggs.
