Written in taut, penetrating prose, Richards' new novel offers a wide array of unforgettable characters. All are wrestling with issues of integrity, self-preservation, and power in the close confines of their coastal community, and tragedy is waiting to happen. Home from college for the summer is Karrie Smith, whose deep longing for a more exciting life makes her especially vulnerable to the shady world between the decent and the dark. The summer becomes fraught with misadventures and abrupt changes in fortune, but it is only in the aftermath of a senseless murder that the real truth emerges. In this richly textured tale, THE BAY OF LOVE AND SORROWS exposes the heart of fierce need and the profligate greed of humankind, and explores the possibility of redemption in whatever circumstances people find themselves. This novel speaks to us, empowers us and enlightens us as Richards reveals the mist of moral uncertainty and the desperation of small-town life.
