Janna, Fairview Branch Manager, suggests two Robert Goolrick novels, Heading Out to Wonderful and A Reliable Wife.
“Both are primarily stories of relationships between men and women who are troubled or who are harboring secrets. His storytelling is lyrical and descriptive and keeps the stories moving forward to the point that you want to know what’s going to happen in the next chapter as soon as you’ve finished the previous one. The stories are also a bit dark but are told in a way as to not be morbid or overbearing. Wonderful has a more tragically violent plot so it’s not for those who are looking for a happy ending.”
