Integration. Jess Montgomery reprises characters from her debut novel, The Widows, in a new novel titled, The Hollows, also set in the 1920s. The past doesn’t always stay buried in the Appalachian hills of Southeast Ohio, and Sheriff Lily Ross finds herself uncovering disturbing evidence of KKK activity and conflict in the community over integration. Lily’s character continues to develop in this novel, and her choices along with those of her friends provide most of the plot momentum. Fans who love historical fiction with strong female characters are those most likely to enjoy this novel.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
