Just finished reading Coal Run by Tawni O’Dell. Treat yourself. Get this book and read it. It made me think about my family, childhood, adulthood and a million memories. Made me think of two old friends both sports stars who hurt their legs before reaching their full potential. It is a novel about families and coal mining country.
It is probably the best novel I have read in the past 7 years. Wish I could have written it.
I will be looking for the rest of her work.
