Long Man

Amy Greene

Set in the summer of 1936, Greene's moving latest (after Bloodroot, 2010) is set in the small Tennessee town of Yuneetah. In an effort to bring electricity to the region, the Tennessee Valley Authority is damming the Long Man River and flooding the town. Just a few days remain before the river will rise, and Annie Dodson is one of the few holdouts. She wants her daughter Gracie to inherit the family's land. When Gracie goes missing during a powerful storm, few people are left to help search for the toddler. A lyrical and unforgettable tale.
