When Gap Creek was
published in 1999, it became an instant national bestseller, attracting
hundreds of thousands of readers to the story of a marriage begun with love and
hope at the turn of the twentieth century. Set in the Appalachian South, it
followed Julie and Hank Richards as they struggled through the first year and a
half of their union. But what of the years following? What did the future hold
for these memorable characters?
Road to Gap Creek answers those questions, as
Robert Morgan takes us back into the lives of Julie and Hank as well as their
children, seen through the eyes of their youngest daughter, Annie. Through
Annie we watch the four Richards children create their own histories, lives
that include both triumph and hardship in the face of the Great Depression and
World War II.
more than a sequel, The Road from Gap Creek is a moving and indelible portrait of
people and their world in a time of unprecedented change, an American story
told by one of the country’s most acclaimed writers. Download and start listening now!
