Where You Once Belonged
Publisher: Vintage Books USA
Everyone loved Jack Burdett. He was the best football player his town had ever seen. His high school friends envied him, Wanda Jo Evans adored him, grown men slapped him on the back. Even after he disappeared, his neighbors thought of it as some kind of joke, just another installment inthe ongoing legen tht followed him about town. But Jack's greed and arrogance have tragic consequences for Holt and its elderly citizens, among them Charlie Soames, the elderly bookkeeper whose trust in Jack destroys him: Wanda Jo, everyone's sweetheart, who did Jack's laundry for seven years in return for his attention every Saturday night; Pat Arbuckle, the loyal editor of the Holf Mercury, who makes the mistake of falling in love with Jack's wife; and, most of all, Jessie Burdett, the quiet, mysterious woman whom Jack woos and marries in a weekend, on company time and credit cards. It is Jessie who bears the brunt of the town's fury, and counters it with her own outrageous sense of justice.
