the kind of novel you stay up late to finish.

It's 1948 in a very small town of Virginia. Nothing exciting every happens Brownsburg, and everyone would like to keep it that way. Then Charlie Beale arrives, with two suitcases filled with all of his possessions, ready to build a new life. He quickly falls in love with the very pretty, Sylvan Glass, who is married to the town's richest man. The love affair is explosive enough to jolt this sleepy town awake.

Author, Robert Goolrick created a very unique narrator in Sam, the little boy who witnessed the affair and is now an old man telling the tale. In Heading Out to Wonderful, you will be twisting and turning until you hit a very haunting end.
