Praise for Wiley Cash

THE LAST BALLAD

**An Indie Next Pick**

"This suspenseful, moving novel is a story of struggle and personal sacrifice for the greater good that will resonate with readers of John Steinbeck or Ron Rash."Publishers Weekly

"Cash creates a vivid picture of one woman's desperation...A heartbreakingly and beautifully written look at the real people involved in the labor movement."Kirkus

"A promising young voice in Southern fiction...writers with earnestness and great sympathy."Library Journal

A LAND MORE KIND THAN HOME

"Absorbing...Cash uses well-placed flashbacks to flesh out his characters...and to illuminate a familiar truth of Souther lit: Many are the ways that fathers fail their sons."Entertainment Weekly

"Mesmerizing...Intensely felt and beautifully told."New York Times Books Review

"This book is a thriller, but it's so beautifully written that you'll be torn about how fast to read it. This is great, Gothic Southern fiction."NPR

"As lyrical, beautiful, and uncomplicated as the classic ballads of Appalachia...Cash captures the reader's imagination in the first chapter...and maintains the wonder of the tale through to the coda of faith and affirmation."Library Journal, Starred Review

THIS DARK ROAD TO MERCY

"A heartfelt and nuanced story, exploring the lines between fear and trust, redemption and love."Chicago Tribune

"Exciting and suspenseful as well as moving, with a captivating heroine, this is a tremendous book."The Guardian

"Cash follows his evocative debut with another striking take on Southern literature....In the rhythms and cadence of the South, Cash offers a tale about family and about the tenuous link among the right choices, living with consequences or seeking redemption."Kirkus
