    "Another Narrator Issue"

    As a fan of Sharyn McCrumb's Ballad Series I was nonplussed when I noticed that the reader was Sally Darling. I had listened to her come close to ruining my two favorite books in the series and it made my choice to purchase this one more difficult than it should have been. So once the audiobook began I realized I'd been right to worry. The setting for this book is less than a hundred miles from I grew up and still live, so I know hillbilly's and the way they talk. Sally Darling sounds as though she should be reading Jane Eyre not the ballad series. I managed to endure her and get through She Walks These Hills and The Rosewood Casket but I gave up on this one a few hours in when the story couldn't overcome the nerve jangling narrator anymore. Do yourself a favor on this one and get the print version.

    "An Intriguing Mystery"

    Intriguing mystery set against the backdrop of Appalachia and memories of the Vietnam war. The twining of folk songs and mountain legends and letters from a Vietnam soldier brings this tale of mystery and suspense to a poignant conclusion of self understanding.

    "A solid start to the series"

    A little mystery with interesting characters that might be found in any small southern town. Interesting characters, a tie to events 20 years old, a class reunion, and small town crimes. A good read.

    The female characters could be better created, but the main male characters are interesting. The narrative is set in the mid 1980s but refers to events of the mid 1960s and the Vietnam War.

    I listened to it on audible. The narrator was pretty good. This is the first in a popular series that has at least ten books.
