Randolph Aldridge is the mill& #8217; s manager, sent by his father& #8212; the mill owner& #8212; to reform both the damaged mill and his damaged older brother. Byron Aldridge is the mill's lawman, a shell-shocked World War I veteran given to stunned silences and sudden explosions of violence that make him a mystery to Randolph and a danger to himself. Deep in the swamp, in this place of water moccasins, whiskey, and wild card games, these brothers become embroiled in a lethal feud with a powerful gangster. In a tale full of raw emotion as supple as a saw blade, < i> < /i> < b> The Clearing< /b> is a mesmerizing journey into the trials that define men& #8217; s souls.
