A contemporary novel set in Misp, a little logging town on the rugged Olympic Peninsula in the Pacific Northwest, The Civil Wars of Jonah Moran tells the story of Jessica Moran, a woman whose deep sense of family loyalty collides with her equally strong sense of justice. The Morans have their problems like anybody else: Jessica hasn't yet come to terms with her autocratic mother & she's still haunted by painful issues from her past. Her brother Jonah has always been something of a misfit, but when he's accused of arson, Jessica just can't believe it's true. Still, someone set fire to the halfway house, killing three of the four ex-cons who called it home as they tried to rebuild their lives. Yet even as evidence against Jonah mounts, most of Misp seems ready to forgive & protect him, closing ranks with a small town's contradictory swirl of malice, bigotry, community allegiance, & compassion. Jessica must confront her own fears, come to her own conclusions, & somehow reconcile her love for her brother--& her grudging respect & growing feeling for the forensics expert who may send Jonah to jail for life.
