My Sunshine Away

Author(s): M. O. Walsh

Adult Fiction

The debut novel everyone is talking about...


"The last page is as satisfying as the first." --Kathryn Stockett


"I really loved this book... I can't praise it enough."--Anne Rice


"It's a book to read and reread, one that will only get better with time."--Tom Franklin


It was the summer everything changed....


My Sunshine Away unfolds in a Baton Rouge neighborhood best known for cookouts on sweltering summer afternoons, cauldrons of spicy crawfish, and passionate football fandom. But in the summer of 1989, when fifteen-year-old Lindy Simpson--free spirit, track star, and belle of the block--experiences a horrible crime late one evening near her home, it becomes apparent that this idyllic stretch of Southern suburbia has a dark side, too.


In My Sunshine Away, M.O. Walsh brilliantly juxtaposes the enchantment of a charmed childhood with the gripping story of a violent crime, unraveling families, and consuming adolescent love. Acutely wise and deeply honest, it is an astonishing and page-turning debut about the meaning of family, the power of memory, and our ability to forgive.
