"Norton Road is a multiple viewpoint novel that successfully transitions between the three maincharacters: Oscar 'Pap' Jones, Sheriff Sam Gant, and sheriff candidate Bodie Craig. Throughthese transitions the reader is able to see the story from all sides, making the characters muchmore than one dimensional. Purdon gives a clear picture of Pap's hatred for the factory, SheriffGant's life outside of the small-town police department, and how Bodie Craig's many passionsbecome one giant twisted obsession. The reader really gets to know the characters; wanting tonot only know where they will end up, but also rooting for them along the way." -- Heather Pohl, Mississippi Library Association
