Christopher (Stump) Hall has never uttered a word in his young life, but one day out with his brother his curiosity gets the best of him and he witnesses something that will end his life and destroy the tattered fabric of his family.
Set in the mountains of Western North Carolina, the story is told in three voices: Jess Hall – Christopher’s younger brother, Adelaide Lyle, the town midwife and keeper of the children during Sunday services, and Clem Barefield the local sheriff and a man who has a cross to bear against the Hall family. Wiley Cash has done a fantastic job of creating these three distinct voices, and a book that you just can’t put down.
Bravo Wiley Cash! I can’t wait until your next.
