Some brief overview of book

"The Widows kept me on the edge of my seat. Montgomery is a masterful storyteller." Lee Martin, author of Pulitzer Prize-Finalist The Bright Forever Kinship, Ohio, 1924 When Lily Ross learns that her husband, Daniel Ross, the towns widely respected sheriff, is killed while transporting a prisoner, she is devastated and vows to avenge his death. Hours after his funeral, a stranger appears at her door.

Marvena Whitcomb, a coal miners widow, is unaware that Daniel has died, and begs to speak with him about her missing daughter. From miles away but worlds apart, Lily and Marvenas lives collide as they realize that Daniel was not the man that either of them believed him to beand that his murder is far more complex than either of them could have imagined. Inspired by the true story of Ohios first female sheriff, this is a powerful debut about two womens search for justice as they take on the corruption at the heart of their community.

"The Widows is a gripping, beautifully written novel about two women avenging the murder of the man they both loved."Hallie Ephron, New York Times bestselling author of You'll Never Know, Dear "Jess Montgomery's gorgeous writing can be just as dark and terrifying as a subterranean cave when the candle is snuffed out, but her prose can just as easily lead you to the surface for a gasp of air and a glimpse of blinding, beautiful sunlight. This is a powerful novel a tale of loss, greed, and violence, and the story of two powerful women who refuse to stand down."Wiley Cash, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Ballad, A Land More Kind than Home, and This Dark Road to Mercy "A flinty, heartfelt mystery that sings of hawks and history, of coal mines and the urgent fight for social justice."Julia Keller, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Bone on Bone
