Greg Lilly grew up in Bristol, Virginia then lived in Charlotte, North Carolina. The rich storytelling tradition of the South captivated him and he began writing.

Rate this book
Clear rating
He reached across the table and took Clio’s hand, his index finger tracing across her knuckles and lingering in the spaces between, the valleys and hills of the back of her hand. He moved her hand over and stroked the mounds in her palm at the base of each finger.
