    What a wonderful book! The best novel I've read in years. My wif

    What a wonderful book! The best novel I've read in years. My wife got a preview copy from someone and loved the book. She told me I had to read it which I really didn't want to do because I thought it was a romance. Well it certainly isn't a romance novel! Yes, there is a man from New York, and a woman from West Virginia who are the main characters but there is a lot more to this story than their relationship. There's corporate intrigue (which I especially enjoyed), colorful utility execs, lawyers, and wonderful twelve year old boy with Downs Syndrome, name the Pie Man. A lot happens in this book and you won't want to put it down, and I guarantee that when you get to the final third of the book or so, you'll be staying up all night to finish it! This book made me laugh out loud at times at some of the great dialog, and I have to admit it brought tears to my eyes more than once, including one chapter near the end of the book with a shocking event that made me cry like a baby. If you are looking for one book to bring to the beach this summer, this is the one. You won't be disappointed.

    This was a great book. You can really relate to the main character, Natty. She tries to be the best mom and wife she can be under less than ideal circumstances. And when tempted by a new love who appears with the promise to be much better in every way than her deadbeat husband, you feel as torn as she does about what she should do. Embrace a new, more glamorous and exciting life? Continue the much simpler, predictable life, but one in which she feels unappreciated and downtrodden? Parallel this to what the energy industry did when in swooped into the small West Virginia community. It promised to bring prosperity and a new life, but there was a dark side as well. And another thing was for certain -- life would not continue on as it once did. Not much different than what's happening now with the promises and potential demise Marcellus shale gas is bringing to this same region of the country. Timely. Interesting. Fast moving. I'd like to read more by this author.

    Gerry Fitzgerald’s first novel is a breathtakingly beautiful tale of love, loss, and redemption. Turning the last page, I had that ache that comes when I have to close the door on characters I had come to care about and a world I wasn’t ready to leave. Take a trip to Redemption Mountain. I guarantee you’ll enjoy the journey.
