Those Who Favor Fire: A Novel Kindle Edition
Those Who Favor Fire is the love story of Rachel Hearn, who has lived in Belle Haven all her life, and the man everyone calls Just Joe, who has arrived only recently--and the story of their love for the town that has brought them together. But as the fire intensi-
fies, endangering Belle Haven and its people, it also threatens what Joe and Rachel have found together. Though some reluctantly consider relocating, Rachel refuses to leave the only place she's ever called home, the place that holds her richest memories. But Joe knows the danger of becoming too firmly rooted in a place. Ultimately, Rachel and Joe must decide whether to abandon their beloved town.
In her wonderful debut novel, Lauren Wolk has created a town every bit as real as the Mitford of Jan Karon's novels and populated it with characters as quirky, lively, and endearing as Fannie Flagg's.
"In Lauren Wolk's capable hands, the story of a close-knit community struggling to coexist with an underground inferno becomes a meditation on trust and betrayal, loyalty and freedom, and the necessary balance between loving and letting go. This novel is by turns heartwarming and heartbreaking, but beautifully written throughout. A stunning debut."--Aimee Liu, author of Cloud Mountain
"Add all three of my names to a burgeoning list of fans: those who favor Lauren Wolk. Cozy as a country kitchen, this novel is, in part, a spice rack of a town remembered. Again I am home, inhaling bogs, barns, and Angela's muffins."--Robert Newton Peck, author of A Day No Pigs Would Die
"First-time novelist Wolk has conceived an engrossing plot and peopled it with appealing characters. [R]eminiscent of the best of Shirley Jackson."--Publishers Weekly
