From Charleston, W. Va. author, Kathleen M. Jacobs
Marble Town tells the story of thirteen-year-old Cole Atwater whose mother was killed in an automobile accident when he was ten. Cole questions whether or not he will follow in the destructive footsteps of his best friend, cling to his childhood sweetheart, become further distant from his grieving father, or trust himself. Through mysterious clues left throughout the historic cemetery his mother tended, the story becomes one of hope, healing, and redemption.
"Jacobs’s language and imagery are something to sink your teeth into. Her descriptions are perfectly crafted. Marble Town is a story of hope and healing and a young boy who faces what each of us faces: choosing between good and bad, between soaring and falling." -Anna Hartman, writer, Charleston, SC
