Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: 'We never should've gone up there...' One Sunday, nine-years-old Jess Hall watches in horror as his autistic brother is smothered during a healing service in the mountains of North Carolina. The unimaginable violence that follows must be untangled by a local sheriff with his own tragic past. "A Land More Kind Than Home" is a spellbinding, heartbreaking story about cruelty and innocence, and the failure of religion and family to protect a child. It is a novel thick with stories and characters connected by faith, infidelity, and a sense of hope that is both tragic and unforgettable.
