“O’Dell weaves I Followed Close behind Her delicately. . . .”
Elizabeth M. Jamison, The Tiger, Clemson University
From the Publisher:
What makes up the kind of person who, like Susan Smith, would drive her two babies into the lake and leave them to drown? Is she, or are other women who have committed such acts, products of a society that expects too much from them? Are they tools of the forces of evil? Misguided souls we could and should try to understand and forgive? What goes into the history and development process of these women? The valley of Rosewood Hill, South Carolina, holds many secrets. Author Darlene O’Dell explores the cracks and crevices, the shining and the dark, ferreting out the personalities, the histories, the pathology of its people. Her debut novel leads the reader into unknown territory.
