A House All Stilled
In a small town in Mississippi, a young boy is coming to maturity in spite of himself. Henry Tollet arrives home one day badly bloodied after being attacked without provocation near his school bus stop. He did not even know the boy who did it, a scraggly youth who vanished as mysteriously as he had appeared. Henry winces as his grandfather tends to the wound, but it is his father’s reaction that troubles him.
