Memorable tale about an important historic event

This is another story from Sharon McCrum. I have really liked all of her books ( except Bimbos of the Death Sun). She does a great job explaining the happenings on the ground & thoughts of the people in this moment of history..

Another Great Ballad Novel

I loved this story. It was so well crafted and had characters who were easy to identify with. Sharyn McCrumb is a master of historical fiction based on real legends and stories.

The Story Telling is disjointed

What would have made King's Mountain better?

The characters could have been better connected. The relationships are incomplete. The reader is required to use their personal experiences to understand the interactions of the characters when Ms. MCrump could have supplied them.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narrator's voice was pleasant, cadence was appropriate and tone was consistent. He read what was presented, but it lacked the human details necessary to make characters come alive.

What character would you cut from King's Mountain?

I don't know. None of them were fleshed out enough for me to understand them.
