ARC Arrival: Abbeville by Jack Fuller

Abbeville by Jack Fuller

Publisher: Unbridled Books

I received this book for review from the publisher.

About the book: A story of our time. A novel for all times.

When the economy collapsed, it threatened everything George Bailey held dear. Returning to the little Central Illinois farm town where his grandfather had first prospered and then fallen into ruin during the Great Depression, George seeks out the details of this remarkable man's rise, fall and spiritual rebirth, hoping to find in them a way to recover himself.

Abbeville is the story of a man caught by the tidal wave of economic disaster, of forces beyond his control, and the meaning he finds in his quest for personal survival is as timely as today's news. (from the back cover)

About the author: Jack Fuller has published six critically acclaimed novels and a book of non-fiction about journalism. He has been a legal affairs writer, a war correspondent in Vietnam, a Washington correspondent and a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial writer. He recently retired as president of the Tribune Publishing Company and lives in Chicago with his wife, Debra Moskovits. He has two children, Tim and Kate. (from the back cover)
