Publisher's Summary

At 10 years old, Hadley Dixon's life changed forever. Since those few tragic weeks, she's tried to keep the past buried, but old bones have a way of rising up.

Grown now, Hadley can't hide any longer.

Haunted by a boy who never made it home, a woman who sings in moonlight and dances in flames, and the strange, scarred recluse who watches it all from the shadow of the pines, the time has come for Hadley to pay for her sins.

They say the truth will set you free, but sometimes it extracts a terrible price along the way. Is it a price Hadley's willing to pay?

A darkly moving mystery, with a southern gothic feel, The Grave Tender is the story of a family where no one is who they seem, the women at the heart of that family, and the extraordinary lengths they're willing to go to protect the ones they love.

    "Unhappy Grave Tender"
    What disappointed you about The Grave Tender?

    I received this audio book for free from the author for an unbiased review. I tried twice to get into it. I couldn't stand the narrator or the story.Gave up after a few chapters.

    Story
    "Not to Be Missed"

    I fell head over heels in love with this book. Eliza Maxwell is a very gifted writer. She has a way of writing that makes you feel what the characters are feeling , and the narration by Homer V. Jones was the perfect choice for this story. He conveyed the characters emotions to a tee. The story itself deals with some very hard subject matter, but it is not done in a distasteful way. That aside, the rest of the story has funny and touching moments too. I think this would make an awesome movie. I can't wait to read more from Eliza, and I hope I am lucky enough to find more books narrated by Homer. This is such a great book.

    Story
    "An Emotional Read.."
    Any additional comments?


    This story is about Hadley Dixon who had a "disturbing" childhood.

    Twenty three years later she returns to her childhood home and learns things (about her childhood friend, her uncle, and her mother).

    Its an emotional read and sad in several scenes.

    Homer V. Jones has a nice calming voice that added to the story.

    "a great listen!"

    This audiobook had me from the very first to the very end. Great writing and great narration. I found the narrator very soothing to listen to - a good storyteller's voice. The relationships between the characters feels real as does the small-town southern setting. I could almost smell the jambalaya!
    There was an awful lot of tragedy and I think the reactions to them could have been meshed out a bit more but then it might teeter on macabre. I did appreciate that it did not dwell on the different tragedies nor did it give gory details. I really enjoyed this book!
    I was gifted this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
