A Hole in the UniverseBook - 2004
Readers and critics have been enchanted by Mary McGarry Morris's unforgettable characters and masterly use of suspense in her four earlier novels, including the bestselling Songs in Ordinary Time . In her latest tour de force, Gordon Loomis returns to a changed world after twenty-five years in prison. His old neighborhood is blighted by drug dealers; his brother is eager to help but is too caught up in his own life; his loyal friend Delores makes him realize that he's just as afraid of relationships as he is of going back to jail; and his inherent decency draws the attention of a hungry child whose survival threatens the fragile balance that is Gordon's freedom.
Compelling and taut, suspenseful and compassionate, A Hole in the Universe will continue to resonate long after the last page is turned.
