Blues for Hannah: A Novel
Heartbreaking and incredible, Blues for Hannah is a beautifully written tale of love lost and regained, and of the unforseeable shape and direction love lends to life.
Jeremiah Mason is struggling to keep his marriage to his college sweetheart LeeAnne afloat when an early-morning phone call informs him of the death of his former love, a beautiful, rebellious blues singer named Hannah, in a car crash on a far-away interstate. His world turned upside-down, Jeremiah and his precocious eight-year-old son, Sammy, must go to the accident site to identify Hannah's body: It is a journey that takes them across the continent -- and decades-deep into a re-examination of the past.
Spanning at once a few intense days and 20 years, Blues for Hannah is a tender meditation on the different forms of love that enrich our lives, binding parent to child, lover to lover, and husband to wife.
