Description

<DIV><B>&ldquo;<I>Southernmost</I>&#160;engages my most deeply hidden fears and hopes . . . I love this book, and for it, I love Silas House.&rdquo; &mdash;Dorothy Allison, author of&#160;<I>Bastard Out of Carolina</I><BR /><BR /> Asher Sharp is willing to give up everything for what he believes in. &#160;Except his son. &#160;</B><BR /><BR /> In the aftermath of a flood that washes away much of a small Tennessee town,&#160;evangelical preacher Asher Sharp&#160;offers shelter to two gay men. In doing so,&#160;he&#160;starts to see his life anew&mdash;and risks losing everything: his wife,&#160;locked into&#160;her religious prejudices; his congregation, which shuns Asher after he&#160;delivers&#160;a passionate sermon in&#160;defense of tolerance; and his young son, Justin, caught&#160;in the middle of what turns into a bitter custody battle.<BR /><BR /> With no way out but ahead, Asher takes Justin and flees to Key West, where he&#160;hopes to find his brother, Luke,&#160;whom he&rsquo;d turned against years ago after&#160;Luke&#160;came out. And it is there, at the southernmost point of the country,&#160;that Asher&#160;and Justin discover a new way of thinking about the world, and a new&#160;way of&#160;understanding love.<br style="caret-color: rgb(0, 0, 0); color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Helvetica; font-size: 12px; font-style: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-weight: normal; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: auto; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: auto; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-size-adjust: auto; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; text-decoration: none;" />In this stunning literary page-turner about judgment, courage, heartbreak, and&#160;change, bestselling author Silas&#160;House wrestles with the limits of belief, and&#160;with love and its consequences.</DIV>
