Wiley Cash is an author from Gastonia, NC. I thoroughly enjoyed his first book, “A Land More Kind Than Home” and recommended it to anyone who would listen!
This Dark Road to Mercy
by Wiley Cash
“This Dark Road to Mercy” is Cash’s second book. He has a magical way with words that makes me reread some passages over and over again. If it had been my books and not the library’s there would have been lots of yellow highlights in both of his books. I just love the way he writes.
