Award-winner Terry Kay is a Southern storyteller in the finest tradition, a novelist whose quiet power has earned him comparisons to the likes of Pat Conroy and John Steinbeck. "The Valley of Light" blends magic and realism into one man's journey back to himself in the years just after World War II.
Terry Kay, one of 12 children, grew up on a 40-acre farm in northeastern Georgia. He still lives in Georgia, where he has set most of his fiction.
From the Publisher
In the years after World War II, a veteran and fisherman named Noah Locke settles in the town of Bowerton, and his entry into the local fishing contest sparks a tragedy.
Haunted by memories of the Second World War, veteran Noah Locke impresses the locals of his new North Carolina lake community home with his near-mystical fishing capabilities and is invited to participate in an annual fishing contest, an event that draws him into the lives of his neighbors and helps him to heal.
