Ep. 47: Heather Bell Adams, Author of Maranatha Road

This week, I’m sharing a conversation with Heather Bell Adams, author of Maranatha Road and a forthcoming novel, The Good Luck Stone (coming July 2020).

Southern Literary Review calls Maranatha Road “[A]n exquisite story with characters so real they could step off the pages into your living room” and says Sadie Caswell is “reminiscent of Olive Kitteridge, the titular character that earned a Pulitzer for Elizabeth Strout. The portrait Adams draws of Sadie is just as fine and unforgettable.” This is a novel to slow down and savor.
