What the Willows Know – By Claude Douglas Bryan
A septic tank collapses and human remains are discovered. Adrian Stockwood receives word that Ora Mae, the dying African-American who raised him, is accused of murder.
Leaving his comfortable life at the university and returning to his rural hometown, he encounters the hurts, frustrations, regrets, and secrets that surrounded his exile from that life.
Battling these internal demons and opposing eternal forces, Adrian struggles for truth and peace both for himself and Ora Mae. Time is running out.
