New Title: ‘An Empty House by the River’ by Robert Hays

New from Florida Publisher Thomas-Jacob on October 4–in spite of Hurricane Ian–a new novel by colleague Robert Hays (“An Inchworm Takes Wing,” “Blood on the Roses”).

From the Publisher

Life has been good in the old Prather house on the bluff overlooking Singleton’s Branch. Then the second “once in a hundred years” flood in a decade brings changes that will affect the Prather family for years to come. Lacy, who sees beauty wherever she looks and expects others to be as good as she is, can no longer count on her big brother to protect her from an abusive husband, and the family learns a hard truth: No one is immune to the quirks of fate, be they blessings or tragedies, and the river takes more than it gives.

The book is currently available in paperback and e-book.
