The Lost Saints of Tennessee by Amy Franklin-Willis.. A man, a dog, a pickup truck light out for Virginia horse country to try a geographic solution to grief and middle-age slippage. Well, the novel works, but I’m not going to give it away.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"The Lost Saints of Tennessee is a joy—a wonderful, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting story about the unbreakable bonds of brotherhood and the human will to survive. I was deeply moved by it and equally impressed."

Elizabeth George

"Franklin-Willis plumbs the depths of family dynamics, compassionately depicting her characters as they struggle with situations over which they have no control."

Library Journal
