Southern Tragedy by Cindy Hulsey

A strong sense of place anchors Robert Goolrick’s mythic Southern Gothic tale, Heading Out to Wonderful. Set in the late 1940s in a small town in Virginia, the story is told from the perspective of lapsed time. Sam Haislett, who was a young child at the time of the events he narrates, relates the tragic tale of a doomed love affair between two lonely outsiders.
