(From the publisher):
First published in 1986, T.R. Pearson's second novel, Off for the Sweet Hereafter, fulfilled the promise of his first, A Short History of a Small Place, returning once more to the mythic environs of Neely, North Carolina, and to the madcap antics of its odd but endearing inhabitants. This book is a rollicking adventure, a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde story about two passionate but star-crossed lovers, Raeford Benton Lynch and Jane Elizabeth Firesheets. Together they cut a wide swath of mayhem and murder before their number comes up in a bloody blaze of glory.
