Summary
A man reflects on the summer of his fourteenth year, where in Baton Rouge he fell in love with a golden-haired girl across the street before an unspeakable crime shattered illusions in his seemingly idyllic neighborhood. My Sunshine Away juxtaposes the enchantment of a Louisiana childhood with the gripping story of a violent crime, unraveling families, and consuming adolescent love. In hauntingly beautiful prose, M.O. Walsh examines how the moments from our past that affect us the most profoundly as adults are often not the ones we expect. they can be a surprising and intricate as the secrets we keep hidden from our friends and families, and even ourselves. Acutely wise and deeply honest, this is an astonishing debut about the meaning of family, the power of memory, and our ability to forgive.--publisher description
