A Hole in the Universe by Mary McGarry Morris

In A Hole in the Universe, Gordon Loomis comes home after serving a 25-year prison sentence for the murder of a local pregnant woman. Burdened by guilt and hoping to return to a quiet life in the old neighborhood, he finds that it has changed for the worse in his absence. He evens gets his old job back at the local grocery store. Gordon is battered on all sides from those who want or need something from him. His brother, a successful oral surgeon, wants him to move out of town and start anew. His crotchety neighbor constantly needs favors, the girl across the street with a crack-addicted mother wants him to adopt her, and a woman who visited him monthly in prison expects intimacy from him. Acutely aware of his own crime, Gordon begins to perceive the crimes of others that they try to hide. Mary McGarry Morris has fashioned a novel gathering glowing reviews. BookPage.com says "A Hole in the Universe is an artfully intriguing and heart-wrenching story of a man who, despite his best efforts to blend unobtrusively into the background, finds himself once again caught up in that messy, tangled web called life."
