The Long Hot Walk
by Deb McCarroll
Eight-year-old Debbie McCarroll is walking an empty stretch of New Mexico desert with her mother Mary and the turbulent ocean of people raging through Mary’s head. The odyssey will lead to an eclectic cast of saints and sinners tucked into a boarding house for Navaho women. The journey will encompass a parade of institutions, estranged siblings and a murdered rooster, all under the looming shadow of Mary’s escalating illness.
