ARC Arrival: Sweeping Up Glass

Sweeping Up Glass by Carolyn Wall

Publisher: Delta/Random House

I received this ARC from the publisher through Shelf Awareness.

About the book: Olivia Harker Cross owns a mountain, or thinks she does, in Pope County, Kentucky, a land where wolves - Olivia's wolves - howl in the night. But now someone is killing the wolves of Big Foley Mountain - and Olivia is beginning to realize how much of her own bitter history she's never fully understood: Her mother's madness, now building toward a fiery crescendo. Her daughter's fight to California, leaving her to raise Will'm, her beloved grandson. And most of all, her town's rage, for Olivia has real and dangerous enemies.

Now this proud, lonely woman will face her mother and daughter, her neighbors, and the wolf hunters of Big Foley Mountain. And when she does, she'll ignite a conflict that will embroil an entire community - and transform her own life in the most surprising ways. (from the book cover)

About the author: Carolyn Wall is an editor and lecturer. As an artist-in residence, she has taught creative writing to more than 4,000 children in Oklahoma, where she is at work on her second novel, The Coffin Maker, coming from Delta in 2010.
