The second coming of Curly Red: a novel
The Liar's Club meets Fried Green Tomatoes in The Second Coming Of Curly Red, a heartwarming, feisty novel about the transformative power of love.
Seventy-year-old Texan, Jimmy Heron, shattered by the tragic death of his wife, takes to the road as he tries to outrun his pain. When he is befriended by Cory Miller and Leigh O'Brien, a lesbian couple living in Reliance, Oregon, the possibilities for a renewed life -- for trust and commitment -- open up.
The two women have become the target of a vicious harassment campaign fueled by the bigotry of the Christian Right. Spreading lies and fear couched as "family values, " the fire and brimstone of the Mt. Goshen Church of the Righteous spills over, igniting an all-too-real conflagration. In its heat, a community is forged and a town remembers how it got its name.
The Second Coming of Curly Red is a story about what hatred can destroy and love rebuild, a story that will grab you by the heart and not let go.
