Everyone in Dark Hollow, Tennessee, knew old Nora Bonesteel had “the Sight.” So naturally she was the first to know about the murder-suicide. Four members of the Underhill family lay dead on a run-down farm, and the two children who survived had no one left. Only the minister’s wife, Laura Bruce, was willing to be their guardian.

The grisly case was supposed to be “open and shut,” but it bothered Sheriff Spencer Arrowood. He had this worried feeling that the bad things were far from over at the Underhill’s farm. And he would feel a lot worse if he knew what else old Nora saw: tragedy for Laura Bruce, an elderly man, a young mother, and the kind of dying that would test the courage of the living and a sheriff’s insights into country ways and hearts.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jan Aldergate | 2/13/2014

    " I'd read one of her books ages ago, it was about some other characters and I wasn't all that enthralled. This one was different- apparently a series based on old Appalachian balads. It was very good - I don't know whether it is truly classifiable as a mystery, but a very good story, and very well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by L.S. Hullinger | 2/10/2014

    " My favorite in Sharyn McCrumb's Appalachia series. "

    " McCrumb may be worthy of my top 10 favored authors. However, since this is the first novel I have read - I hesitate to make that statement with utmost sincerity. Enjoyed the twists and turns in the plot; as well as the constant tugging of my heart for several characters. Well done, Ms. McCrumb! "
