Publisher's Summary

After this author's first novel The Devils of Truro comes his impressive and very interesting second work, Donald Hucksworth.

A novel loosely based around an incestuous Kings County mountain clan known as the Goler’s, this story is told through the eyes of three main characters.

Donald Hucksworth is the mentally ill bumbling grandson who loves exploring the sewer. Elizabeth Hucksworth is his grandmother, the elderly woman with a fearsome and secretive reputation with her own dark past. While Ernie Goler is the cruel and sadistic sex offender who’s recently been released after a long stretch spent in a New Brunswick penitentiary.

As Elizabeth tries to hide her own dark past, she continues to run her and her deceased husband's thriving apple growing operation above the Goler mountain community in South Mountain Nova Scotia. Elizabeth, a fearless and formidable presence, remains committed to helping the Goler women of South Mountain fight against their abusers.

Donald Hucksworth gets caught up in his own understanding of reality by spending his time between the family homestead and traveling through Nova Scotia's long connection of sewers in his dory rowboat. Donald finds there in the dark underworld that he must struggle with his own version of reality in order to make a plan to try to help his Goler friends. Despite his mental illness he must try to ward off evil itself and help the people he loves. He must do it all while life conspires to confuse his reality. If there is hope or ultimately a good overarching arc in these characters' lives then they struggle to understand it.

This is a beautifully told story worth listening to!
