Wayne Derek Quarles wins no sainthood awards. Within the span of a week, his malevolence causes him to lose his job, his Hummer, and his wife. On his way to visit an elderly great-uncle in tiny Union, West Virginia, Wayne’s life turns even more wretched as injuries force him to stay for awhile.
Union, WV is a story of healing and redemption in contemporary Appalachia.
