The Last Ballad

by Wiley Cash

The New York Times bestselling author of the celebrated A Land More Kind Than Home and This Dark Road to Mercy returns with this eagerly awaited new novel, set in the Appalachian foothills of North Carolina in 1929 and inspired by actual events. The chronicle of an ordinary woman’s struggle for dignity and her rights in a textile mill, The Last Ballad is a moving tale of courage in the face of oppression and injustice, with the emotional power of Ron Rash’s Serena, Dennis Lehane’s The Given Day, and the unforgettable films Norma Rae and Silkwood.


Staff Reviews

In my opinion, this is Cash's best novel yet. Historical fiction that recounts the life of Ella May Wiggins - NC rebel, fighter, resistor... all in a time before women, especially southern women, did such things.
