Publisher's Summary

A father protects his daughter from the legacy of his past - and the truth about her mother's death - in this thrilling new novel from the prize-winning author of The Good Thief.
After years spent living on the run, Samuel Hawley moves with his teenage daughter, Loo, to Olympus, Massachusetts. There, in his late wife's hometown, Hawley finds work as a fisherman, while Loo struggles to fit in at school and grows curious about her mother's mysterious death. Haunting them both are twelve scars Hawley carries on his body, from twelve bullets in his criminal past - a past that eventually spills over into his daughter's present, until together they must face a reckoning yet to come. This father-daughter epic weaves back and forth through time and across America, from Alaska to the Adirondacks. Both a coming-of-age novel and a literary thriller, The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley explores what it means to be a hero, and the cost we pay to protect the people we love most.

A literary work with a plot line

It took me a little while to get into this book, and it doesn't have the "gotcha" of a Stephen King, but I prefer great writing to plot twists, anyway.
If you're always looking for a "good book," don't pass this one by
Not a classic contender for Great American novel, but good enough to spend your time with if you prefer a literary fiction.

Well written & well read.

Well written & well read. Great characters. An absorbing, but grim and painful tale, tinged with a glimmer of phosphoresence.
