Publisher's Summary

Covenant continues the beloved saga of the residents of Jericho, a sleepy town in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia, where life and love have as many twists and turns as a winding mountain road. 

Six weeks have passed since the fateful unfolding of events at the town fourth of July celebration. Questions swirl about the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of the town nemesis, Gerald Watson. Was it an accident, or was Watson murdered? As the scorching summer gives way to an early fall, suspects in the potential homicide abound, and everyone seems to be keeping secrets. 

Throughout it all, bonds of love and fealty are stretched and tested as the endearing and quirky residents of this once-idyllic community weigh the covenants they keep against the secrets that threaten to tear them apart. Join Syd, Maddie, David, Michael, Henry, Celine, and the irrepressible Roma Jean Freemantle as they band together to navigate the minefields of their ever-changing world in this newest Jericho novel.

A very fitting and perfekt book and end to an era

I was counting the last days to this release . And as soon as the download was in my library I started listening . Straight through . I had to sit down sometimes to just concentrate on the story . Both near tears and crying laughing at the best parts . And now that I am writing the first review ( a big accomplishment of mine ) I am saddened and at the same time filled with love and great full that this book is a very fitting end of the area of the Jericho series . From reading book 1 for the first time online in the bard forum too the first audible release , till now in printed version and in Audioformate. The series has always been my comfort read under this decade and always will be . I can’t recommend enough to read them all .
My only beef is that there aren’t enough ducks or reindeer in the series 😁

Oh how I’ve missed Jericho - happy to go back

I love everything about this series, and this new addition is magic. It does have some tough topics, but I’m so thankful I was able to revisit Jericho and so many of my favorite characters. I also love that the narrator remained the same, keeping all characters voices the same and consistent. I’ve downloaded the first book from my library to start the series again. Thank you Ann McMan for such beautiful characters and stories.

Just like the other in the series

This one was excellent, the story was engaging, it was great to return to some of the characters in Jericho. i was glad the story touches the transparent children victims of domestic violence and abuse.

Another great one from Ann McMan! Christine Williams is fantastic as always. Very soothing to listen to. A fascinating continuation of the lives of the Jericho residents.

Jericho books are my favorite

Ann McMan is one of my favorite authors and Jericho is my favorite story. It feels so real (aside from all the gay people living in a small town but who would mind that) and current.

Whew!

Thank you Ann and thank you Christine. This has been amazing! This is my favorite series. Jericho is such a great escape. I feel like I know these people and this town. I want to go there. Ann, thank you for becoming a writer. You are the best! And Christine as well. The best narrator there is! If you haven’t listened to this series you are missing out! It feels cliché to say I hope for another so I’ll say this. I hope that someday in the future we get to read how everyone is doing and what they’re up to. This was so much more than a label for a genre. This story is literature! Get it. Read it!

brilliant

I've loved these books and Covenant is possibly my favourite of the 4 , its not an easy decision.
I like how Ann McMan deals with hard topics and the aftermath along with the right and often the wrong way such events are dealt with
Above all I'm left with the fact that family is who we make it
as with the other books before this I've enjoyed learning more about the side characters in the books , watching them grow
Christine Williams narration was again wonderful

hope eternal

Ann Mcmans' writing surpasses all with the tenderness in which she describes the most evil of all crimes, for there is nothing worse than the abuse of your own child, and the love found or given by those sneered upon by religious zealots is more comforting and compassionate. beautifully narrated once again by Christine Williams , dedicated to my own Dorothy.

Another success for Ann McMan and Chris Williams

Another good story from Ann McMan, narrated by Christine Williams.

I have read / listened to all of the novels, novellas and stories of the Jericho series by Ann McMan and loved everyone of them

Covenant again treads that very fine writing that goes from tragedy and seriousness to madcap humour from one chapter to another. Your emotions are certainly kept on a Yo Yo. The novel has four stories running through it, who killed the mayor, the relationship between Dorothy and Celine, the wedding plans for Sid and Mattie and what's up with David. The novel follows straight on from Golden Rod and certainly completes the Jericho saga extremely well.

For those of you who are looking for a good story in the class of lesbian fiction, I can certainly recommend this book. However, I'd suggest you have a box of tissues close at hand, for whether your laughing or crying the tears will be rolling. Mine certainly were, especially knowing that this is the last book in the series.

Confused

Romajean is calling her Aunt Evelyn Aunt Edna. Edna is her mother.
Not sure if this is a performance error.

Well written and narrated

Amazing continuance of the Jericho stories. The characters are like old friends and you laugh and cry with them. Traumatic in parts, made you want to go out and keen at the pain endured but the ending was so worth the journey. The ratios were restored.
