Abstract:

Percy Harding is Goliath's most important citizen, so when fourteen-year-old Vincent Bailey stumbles upon his body near the railroad tracks one perfect autumn afternoon, the tragic death seems literally unbelievable. How could it have been a suicide? Only Harding's secretary, Rosamond, has a glimmer--a glimmer that tugs at her, urges her to find out more. Harding isn't the first person to leave Rosamond; everybody does, from her husband Hatley, who walked out on her years ago, to her complicated daughter Agnes, whose girlhood bedroom was papered with the maps of the places she wanted to escape to. Brought to life by a cast of characters as varied and rich as in any fiction--from Clyde Winston, the town's police chief, to Goliath's self-taught preacher, Ray, to Percy Harding's unmoored widow, Lela--Goliath's appeal is memorable.
