Overview

After the deaths of his parents, Simon Bell returns to his hometown of Sherwood, Alabama, hoping for a simple, quiet existence. But when he meets Delia Holladay one hot, unmoving summer day, latent needs and desires are awakened. Delia is young, beautiful, and married. As their emotions deepen, the affair slips beyond their control, building to a final reckoning that will leave no one untouched. Divining Rod tells a richly layered tale of adultery, love, and murder, as it follows the arc of one fateful romance to its inevitable and heartbreaking conclusion.
