It Was the Goodness of the Place cover
July 2004
It Was the Goodness of the Place
by Lucinda Dixon Sullivan

A woman flees abuse and infidelity and tries to build a new life with her daughter. Her husband vows to reform and win her back—even while facing both official justice and the stalkings of a self-appointed avenging angel after the death of his mistress. In It Was the Goodness of the Place, her debut novel, Lucinda Dixon Sullivan sets these dark human acts and emotions against lovingly rendered scenes of natural beauty: the hush of hills blanketed with new-fallen snow, brilliant river-valley sunsets, the extravagant colors and scents of a Kentucky spring. In the process, she explores how love can beget violence and grief turn to madness and murder ... but also how hope and faith in a better future endure despite it all.

Lucinda Dixon Sullivan

Raised in Bowling Green, Lucinda Dixon Sullivan attended the University of Kentucky before leaving school for several years to get married and start a family. After something of an epiphany experienced while running errands, she says, she announced that she was returning to school to study writing. The family was living in Louisville by then, so she finished her undergraduate work at the University of Louisville. She then went on to earn an M.F.A. in writing from Vermont College in 1992.
