Heading Out to Wonderful by Robert Goolrick

It’s the summer of 1948 in rural Virginia.  Charlie Beale has just arrived in town and quickly endears himself to the townspeople with his good looks, baseball talent, and butchering skills.  He becomes a second father to the owner’s son, Sam, and soon meets the teenage wife of Boaty Glass, the richest man in town.  Charlie becomes obsessed with her and heads down a path of destruction that changes the town forever.    This gothic tale of secrets and lies will entertain you.  Check out Robert Goolrick’s first novel, The Reliable Wife, from the library, too!
