Description

In 1989, Jodi McCarty is seventeen years old when she's sentenced to life in prison. When she's released eighteen years later, she finds herself at a Greyhound bus stop, reeling from the shock of unexpected freedom but determined to chart a better course for herself. Not yet able to return to her lost home in the Appalachian Mountains, she heads south in search of someone she left behind, as a way of finally making amends. There, she meets and falls in love with Miranda, a troubled young mother living in a motel room with her children. Together they head toward what they hope will be a fresh start. But what do you do with your past-and with a town and a family that refuses to forget, or to change? Set within the charged insularity of rural West Virginia, Mesha Maren's Sugar Run is a searing and gritty debut about making a break for another life, the use and treachery of makeshift families, and how, no matter the distance we think we've traveled from the mistakes we've made, too often we find ourselves standing in precisely the place we began.

Professional reviews

"The ability to portray empathetic characters is one of narrator Hillary Huber's signature skills. Listeners will be moved by the gritty story of felon Jodi McCarty, who was convicted of murder at age 17, imprisoned for life, and then unexpectedly released 18 years later. In a tone of awe and loss, Huber lets Jodi's slow movement into her new world of freedom gradually unwind. So much has changed, but Jodi is focused on one mission: to make amends, Huber allows more confidence and joy into her voice as Jodi reclaims her lost life. Together, she and her new girlfriend, Miranda, search for a way to find peace to go along with Jodi's new freedom. R.O. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
