West Virginia is hidden, and nothing is more hidden than the lives of its women. Four different women “speak their piece” in this novel:
Lorraine: a daughter abandoned by her mother.
Carmen: a mother who tries to explain.
Jenna: the young daughter who, in a desperate effort to alleviate her mother’s pain, falls flat when confronted by an unexpected reality.
Lizzie: the furious source, who, though dead, lives and moves within each relationship, the strength of her memories spanning generations.
A tour de force of Appalachian life beginning in the early 1900’s unto the present day. This Will Never Stop is a must read for fans of Appalachian fiction and the women who struggle within the confines a culture which not only resists change, but resists them.
