When Percy Harding, Goliath's most important citizen, is discovered dead by the railroad tracks outside of town one perfect autumn afternoon, no one can quite believe it's really happened. Percy, the president of the town's worldrenowned furniture company, had seemed invincible. Only Rosamond Rogers, Percy's secretary, may have had a glimpse of how and why this great man has fallen, and that glimpse tugs at her, urges her to find out more.

Percy isn't the first person to leave Rosamond - everybody seems to, from her husband, Hatley, who walked out on her years ago, to her complicated daughter Agnes, whose girlhood bedroom was papered with maps of the places she wanted to escape to. The town itself is Rosamond's anchor, but it is beginning to quiver with the possibility of change. The high school girls are writing suicide poetry, the town's young, lumbering sidewalk preacher is courting Rosamond's daughter, a troubled teenage boy plans to burn Main Street to the ground, and the furniture factory itself - the very soul of Goliath - threatens to close.

In the wake of the town's undoing, Rosamond seeks to reunite the griefshaken community. Goliath - a story of loss and love, of forgiveness and letting go - is a lyrical swoon of a novel by an exceptionally talented newcomer.

    " Loved this book and its delightfully quirky characters. The small town omniscient voice was masterfully done. Such a pleasure to read! "

    " This novel is well-written and the characters are intriguing, but the plot is slow-moving (like the pace of life in the mythical small-town Goliath, I suppose). I was hoping for a bit more sizzle and spark. "

    " I could not get into this book...it jumped around too much and the story line was very boring...I kept reading thinking it would get better but it never did...didn't even make it to the end... "
