"The flaw in this family is that we love unequally and sometimes not enough." Elise Delcroix left the small town she grew up in eleven years earlier, angry, hurt, and vowing never to return. As a child she'd felt entitled to the best of her father's love and attention, resenting his favoritism toward her half-sister and half-brother. Only her immigrant grandfather had showered her with the devotion she felt she needed. Furious when family suspicions turn toward her, rather than her brother, over a questionable bank transaction, she leaves home for New York and remains estranged from her father until his death. Set in the green, rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania, The Narrow Gate is a powerful and tender novel about coming home and a family that must face its own flaws to find a way to heal. First Place winner of the 2017 TAZ Award for Fiction from The Author Zone, this novel is a heart-warming and moving experience.
