“Susanne Davis's Gravity Hill delivers the goods…” – Wally Lamb, New York Times bestselling author of We are Water and She’s Come Undone

Pre-order in our online store for 9/13/22 release, or purchase during the event.

Gravity Hill is a story about Jordan Hawkins, her family, and a small rural town in Connecticut wrecked by the tragic death of three boys on Gravity Hill.

But what first appears to be a tragedy of drunk driving leads back to a mysterious accident that has plagued a small town for years, sending Jordan on a journey to clear her brother’s name. What she discovers—a hidden toxic waste site—sends the whole town on its own bumpy road to self-awareness and healing.
