“It is a special pleasure to welcome this novel of kinship, loss, and love, set in the mountains of North Carolina. Heather Adams is an exciting new voice in Appalachian fiction.” – Robert Morgan. “Maranatha Road is an ode to beauty and suffering, grief and hope, in a small mountain town. Within its pages, Heather Bell Adams brings to vivid life two strong southern women, at odds yet bound by love’s saving grace.” – Amy Greene. “In prose as pure and clear and resonant as a mountain ballad, Adams takes us directly into the hearts of her characters.” – Kim Church. This novel is set in a town like Hendersonville, North Carolina, where the author grew up. The stage is set for the drama as Sadie is grieving at the absence of her son, Mark, and Tinley arrives claiming that Mark got her pregnant, betraying his fiancé.
