Product description


Haunting, lyrical, entirely absorbing, Sweeping Up Glass deserves a place on the shelf next to classics like True Grit and To Kill A Mockingbird. Carolyn Wall is a brilliant storyteller and this book is a wonderful read - O, The Oprah Magazine.

A powerful, unforgettable first novel'


Olivia Harker grew up in brutally segregated Depression-era Kentucky, the proud and willful child of an adored father and a disturbed and vindictive mother. Left to her own devices, her black neighbours became her friends and playmates; their parents her guardian angels. Now running a ramshackle grocery store with her beloved grandson and her difficult widowed mother, Olivia has no idea of the long shadow cast by events of her childhood. When she finally becomes party to a decades-old mystery, she must get to grips with past betrayals before fighting to save her family, her community and her life.Carolyn D Wall has a strong, fresh narrative voice that doesn't let go - this is a deeply involving story that demands to be read in one sitting.
