The World Made Straight – Ron Rash


Ron Rash’s 2006 novel immerses the reader and let’s them know upfront what it means to be from Appalachia. The ties he holds dear are shattered when something out of the ordinary comes across Travis Shelton’s path. The consequences of learning what your family truly was causes Travis to reevaluate all that he has ever known.

A novel that is not for the faint of heart. It’s a moving book that I have to reread every chance I get.
