Cavedweller (10 Cassettes)by Dorothy Allison, Dean Robertson (Read by)
When Delia Byrd packs her car and begins the long trip home from the rock & roll business and LA, she heads to Cayro, Georgia, and her past. Ten years earlier, she had left the husband who turned on her, abandoned her two daughters, and fled to California. But Delia is pulled back to Georgia -- to a world of convenience stores and kudzu, of biscuit factories and deeply-rooted Baptism - to make a deal with the man she paid a high price to leave. She brings her third daughter, Cissy, with her.
As the lives of Delia, Cissy, Amanda and Dede converge, Delia's past uncoils into the present with a ferocity that brings all four women to terms with themselves and with one another. Written by one of America's great storytellers, "Cavedweller" is a sweeping novel of the human spirit that maps a world of "lost" and "known" caves, the unexplored recesses of the heart, and the lives of four women at a place where violence, and what redeems it, intersect.
