Everyone in town said Abel’s father had changed and it was true. His heart had been chipped away, eroded by loss and stolen by the poverty and drought that had killed this land.
For Abel and his younger brother, each night unlocks fresh mystery. Who is the stranger they’ve seen out in the valley? And where is it their father goes each night, rifle in hand, under cover of darkness?
To answer these questions they will have to follow him out into the wilderness – away from their childhood home and into the shadowy arms of a world where love and kinship have murderous consequences.
Set in the mid-1930s, And Let My Cry Come Unto Thee is an atmospheric exploration of morality, justice and hope, following the lives of two brothers growing up in the desolate landscape of depression-era America.
