A Town of Empty Rooms

(2013)
A novel by

 
A Town of Empty Rooms presents the story of Serena and Dan Shine, estranged from one another as they separately grieve over the recent loss of Serena's father and Dan's older brother. Serena's actions cause the couple and their two small children to be banished from New York City, and they settle in the only town that will offer Dan employment: Waring, North Carolina.

There, in the Bible Belt of America, Serena becomes enmeshed with the small Jewish congregation in town, led by an esoteric rabbi whose increasingly erratic behavior threatens the future of his flock. Dan and their young son are drawn into the Boy Scouts by their mysterious and vigilant neighbor, who may not have their best intentions at heart. Tensions accrue when matters of faith, identity, community, and family all fall into the crosshairs of contemporary small-town America.

A Town of Empty Rooms presents a fascinating insight into the lengths we will go to discover just where we belong.
