Overview

When the heart of a man gets pulled loose, he starts dying. I started dying a year ago, and I'm still working on it. GRITTY SOUTHERN FICTION AT ITS FINEST - Midwest Book Review... It's 1946. The war is over. Millions of American soldiers are coming home and Benjamin Church is one of them. After four years of being away he thought things in Alabama would have changed, but they haven't.
Grinder's Corner is as it's always been--a hardscrabble burp in the road. It's not much, but it's home.
When Benjamin attends a harvest festival in Twin Pines, he catches sight of Delia. Before their first dance ends, he knows for certain she's the one. They fall madly in love; happily, impatiently, imprudently, in love. It doesn't matter that her daddy is staunchly opposed to the thought of his daughter marrying a cotton farmer, never mind a poor one.
It's true Benjamin has little to offer; he's a sharecropper who will spend his whole life sweating and slaving to do little more than put food on the table. But that's how things are in Alabama. Benjamin is better off than most; he has a wife, a boy he adores, and a house that doesn't leak rain. Yes,Benjamin considers himself a lucky man until the fateful night that changes everything.
