NEVERH0ME by LAIRD HUNT

How do you solve a problem like Ash Thompson? The heroine of “Neverhome,” Laird Hunt’s enthralling new novel set during the Civil War, is at once sentimental and aloof, a savior and a killer, a folk hero who shuns her own legend, a fierce and wounded woman who finds strength in her troubled past. Above all she is a liar, but one whose every word has the sheen of truth. “I was strong and he was not,” she begins her tale, “so it was me went to war to defend the Republic.” Yet it becomes clear that Ash is hardly motivated by patriotism, and that an equally devastating war awaits her return home.
