Strong, resilient, and deeply loyal, Dottie Connell farms her family's 300 acres in rural Ohio alone. She's sacrificed love and family for land she does not own. When a sudden, inexplicable event leaves her best friend's daughter in her care, Dottie comes face to face with the past she has worked fifteen years to forget, and is forced to confront her ideas on motherhood, sexuality, and God. This Heavy Silence explores the mysteries of grace, the bargaining of birthright, and the power of vows -- those we make to others, and especially those we make to ourselves. Evoking the hardships, windswept beauty, and simplicity, of the rural Midwest, this beautifully observed novel leads us to question our ideas about the obligations of motherhood, faith, and the debts we owe.
