This tantalizing addition to the award-winning Ballad series is a story that could be told only by Sharyn McCrumb, author of She Walks These Hills. A New York Times best-selling writer, McCrumb is noted for her lyrical tales that combine Appalachian lore with contemporary mysteries. Randall Stargill is dying. As his four sons gather to build his coffin, a local wise woman arrives with a small box that must be buried with the old man. In it are the fragile bones of a child and the memories of an ancient crime. Already faced with decisions about what to do with their father’s farm, his sons are now drawn into a hazardous conflict between families who would die for their land and those who do not value the rich tradition of the region. As the Stargills attempt to identify the child, McCrumb weaves mystical Indian legends and Daniel Boone’s sweeping visions of his beloved mountains into the investigation. The layers of this entrancing mystery create an unforgettable story of loving and letting go. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Full of beautifully observed details of everyday life which anchor the mystical moments and keep us rooted in reality.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “What’s most striking about this engaging, deeply moving story is not the plot or even the vividly rendered setting; it’s the aptness of McCrumb’s observations about people and life…McCrumb’s love for the mystical beauty of modern Appalachia, her deep affection for the rugged people who live there, and her fascination with the history of the region add depth and charm to a story that’s warm without being sentimental.”
