Praise for The Road from Gap Creek:

Once again, Robert Morgan's true landscape is, as with all great writers, the peaks and valleys, the long and winding paths, of the human heart. What a writer, and what a novel!

— Ron Rash, author of Nothing Gold Can Stay and Above the Waterfall
. . .

Though Morgan operates from a place, a place he know as intimately as one knows the history of one's own family, he is not about providing a limited picture of a limited vista, but doing what all great writers do&mdash;looking into the hearts of their characters and finding the real. And he has the talent and vast empathy required to bring back the real and deliver it to us a wonderful fiction... In <em>The Road from Gap Creek</em>, he delivers another powerhouse novel of his people, with their virtues and failings, wins and losses, loves and sorrows.

— Daniel Woodrell, author of Winter's Bone
. . .

Robert Morgan remains the consummate storyteller. He is one of the best I've ever seen at making time move the way memory moves, weaving a sense of history, and offering characters so compelling that a kinship of the heart is felt. The characters linger in the mind, like a melody you can't and don't want to forget. This book must be read for its broad, sagacious wit as well as for its power to convince us of extraordinary courage in ordinary life.

— Elizabeth Cox, author of The Ragged Way People Fall Out of Love
. . .

Robert Morgan returns to the setting of his widely acclaimed novel <em>Gap Creek</em>, the rugged mountains of Appalachia, where the next generation of its unforgettable characters face the tolls of World War II and the changing of their pocket of America. Oprah adored the original, and in this further telling&mdash;propelled by masterful storytelling&mdash;you will discovery why.

— Ivan Doig, author of The Bartender's Tale
