The Half-Life of Home by Dale Neal

The Half-Life of Home delves into the hard choice between saving your family or losing your land. Real estate appraiser Royce Wilder is struggling to rekindle his marriage and his relationship with his estranged teenage son. He is thinking about selling the family farm -- no easy choice for a man who collects antiques because he can't forget the past haunted by a crazy woman neighbor.  But radioactive gas seeps from his birthplace, driving down prices and raising the stakes. Royce must unearth long-buried family secrets in an Appalachian community under threat in an always changing world.
