Maid's Version by Daniel Woodrell

This is the story of a small town dance hall fire that kills 28 people. Told by the maid's grandson it retells the story of Alma the maid, her life spent in poverty and servitude and the tangled intertwining lives of families in this town  and events leading up to the fire. Desperation, love, lust, madness, survival, intrigue, a well written book and a quick read!
