Read full description of the books:
When Percy Harding, Goliathâ€™s most important citizen, is discovered dead by the railroad tracks outside town one perfect autumn afternoon, no one can quite believe itâ€™s really happened. Percy, the president of the townâ€™s world-renowned furniture company, had seemed invincible. Only Rosamond Rogers, Percyâ€™s secretary, may have had a glimpse of how and why this great man has fallen, and that glimpse tugs at her, urges her to find out more.
Â Percy isnâ€™t the first person to leave Rosamond: everybody seems to, from her husband, Hatley, who walked out on her years ago; to her complicated daughter Agnes, whose girlhood bedroom was papered with maps of the places she wanted to escape to. The town itself is Rosamondâ€™s anchor, but it is beginning to quiver with the possibility of change. The high school girls are writing suicide poetry. The townâ€™s young, lumbering sidewalk preacher is courting Rosamondâ€™s daughter. A troubled teenaged boy plans to burn Main Street to the ground. And the furniture factory itselfâ€”the very soul of Goliathâ€”threatens to close.
Â In the wake of the townâ€™s undoing, Rosamond seeks to reunite the grief-shaken community. Goliath, a story of loss and love, of forgiveness and letting go, is a lyrical swoon of a novel by an exceptionally talented newcomer.
