Library Journal calls Laura DiSilverio’s The Reckoning Stones an “outstanding, dark stand-alone” and “an excellent read for Megan Abbott or Kate Morton aficionados” (starred review).
When fifteen-year-old Mercy Asher accuses her pastor of molesting her, the tight-knit community brands her a liar. She runs away. The night she leaves, someone–her father?–beats Pastor Matt into a coma and leaves his wife for dead. Two decades later, Pastor Matt’s awakening makes national news and Mercy, who has reinvented herself as jewelry designer Iris Dashwood, finds herself losing ground to the painful memories she’s barely kept at bay. Iris has no choice but to return to Lone Pine to confront the man who tore her life apart and recover the truth from a community that protects its own.
