Jacket cover from Readers will savor the unforgettable characters and settings of the South in The Lost Saints of Tennessee by Alabama writer Amy Franklin-Willis in this well-rendered debut. Everyone had high hopes for Ezekiel Cooper, smartest boy in his high school class.  But tragedy strikes when Zeke's mentally challenged twin brother dies in a drowning accident, changing the course of Zeke's life.  A decade and a divorce later, Zeke splits town with his loyal dog and enough pain pills to kill them both.  But fate has other plans for him as he is given the opportunity to heal and make amends at his cousin's lush Virginia horse farm. With echoes of The Prince of Tides and Bastard out of Carolina, you'll find yourself rooting for these characters to the very last page.
