The Healing by Jonathan Odell

The Healing by Jonathan Odell

“A terrific novel that will take its place in the distinguished pantheon of Southern fiction. Like The Help, that show-stopping work by Kathryn Stockett, The Healing is another Mississippi-born work of art and Odell’s Polly Shine is a character for the ages.”
—Pat Conroy, author of The Prince of Tides and South of Broad

The depths below are hot, warmer than the surface, and this book tunnels down through the geological layers, meeting the creatures, real and fictional, that dwell in darkness. To go under London is to penetrate history, to enter a hidden world.
