The Last Ballad by Wiley Cash
"I'm convinced that Wiley Cash cannot write a bad book. While this one was a little slow out of the gates, once it settled in the story is absolutely amazing. "

"Part historical novel part social commentary, this book was hard to put down. The need to what happens next is frustrating and it's written so well. I wouldn't have imagined a historical novel about the labor movement in south would even interest me " Read more of this review »

“I've heard it said before that those who don't learn from the past are bound to repeat it, and I just don't know what I think about that. I figure I don't have too much use for it. The past will just weigh on you if you spend too much time remembering it.”
Wiley Cash, A Land More Kind Than Home

“It's a good thing to see that people can heal after they've been broken, that they can change and become something different from what they were before.”

“But since then I've learned to just go ahead and take fairness out of the equation. If you do, things stand the chance of making a whole lot more sense.”
