Two sisters can't stand to live together, but can't bear to be apart. One worships the flashy world of Nashville, the other is a devout Pentecostal. One falls into the lap of any man, the other is afraid to even date. One gets pregnant in a flash, the other desperately wants to have a child. This is what's at the heart of Silas House's third novel, which tells the story of Easter and Anneth, tragically left parentless as children, who must raise themselves and each other in their small coal-mining town. Easter is deeply religious, keeps a good home, believes in tradition, and is intent on rearing her wild younger sister properly. Anneth is untamable, full of passion, determined to live hard and fast. It's only a matter of time before their predilections split their paths and nearly undo their bond. How these two women learn to overcome their past, sacrifice deeply for each other, and live together again in the only place that matters is the story of The Coal Tattoo.

    " This book goes to prove the stereotypes right. Tennessee/Kentucky folk do nothing but drink, has sex, and speak in something that is NOT English. Story was okay ... The ending was awful. "

    " The author didn't stretch too much to create the main characters - sisters who are opposites. "

    " Definitely captures an almost indescribable love of land, which is quite the accomplishment. I felt as though I were a part of Easter and Anneth's world. It was nice to be home again. "

    " Not my favorite of House's novels, but well-written and totally worth reading. "
