About the Author

I live in Virginia, have blue eyes, and am owned by a possessive cat. I find animal behavior and the human condition fascinating. Writing is a way of life and I write because I cannot help it, trying to paint my mind pictures in words for others to see.

Legends of Nevermore County could be anywhere in the world. Ms. Bradford has captured the essence of small towns and the sometimes odd people that live there. I will always remember Mother Goody as

the person who can always fix things that just don't go right. I also think that Summer Island has the potential for a great movie.

"The Legends Of Nevermore County" is trip to a secret place not so far away. In fact it is strangely familiar. There are deep secrets, hidden agendas, dark and light happenings all seemingly connected to mist, a tree, and a mountain. We start with a natural disaster understood by cows but no one else, that ends in the strange transformation of many creatures. We are introduced to a woman who longs for travel, but waits at home the rest of her life for her ride to arrive. Young Klee, who falls in love with a tree. We sit on the floor watching TV eating Mrs. Winston's wonderful doughnuts. We run into Mother Goody a healer and herbalist that we all wish we had living in our neighborhood. The mysterious Rainbow Weavers live here in Neever's Knob beside the river, grazing their sheep in the surrounding highlands, and exercising their strange weaving rituals. There is the story of a young boy and his coming of age, I reflected on my own personal experiences while looking through his young eyes. Then there is the magic honey from Summer Island that can cure most any ailment, and the secrets of the women who harvest it.

This part of Nevermore County, connected solely to the rest of the world by two small bridges across the Noname River, is a magical place, almost like the "Waltons" placed in the "Twilight Zone". But Ms. Bradford makes us believe, as she reports on the secret lives and experiences of the families who have lived there for generations. She has managed to bring me back to the child watching TV on a Sunday night. Mary Martin as Peter Pan was pleading with me to believe in fairies to save poor Tinkerbelle's life from Hook's poison. Right then, as I clapped my hands until they hurt, I believed, as I have never believed before. Adelle, I believe in Nevermore County and want to read more.

Format: Paperback
I can't recommend this novel. It's stuck somewhere between being for kids and being for adults and doesn't know what to do with itself. The storylines and general feeling is suitable for kids, but the level of writing is overly detailed for them. The characters are too one-dimensional to be of any entertainment. I couldn't identify with any of them. The environments are very cliched mystical Grimm brothers kind of stuff. The writer is in love with the sound of her own voice and just goes on and on sometimes.

This is a fantastic collection of stories that shed light on some of the everyday and not-so-everyday ocurrances you'll find if you just look that little bit closer into the small communities off the beaten track.

The tales are carefully and beautifully told and just enticing enough to make you believe in magic.

Can heartily recommend for curious young minds looking for adventures - and old minds that have refused to grow up!

A bit of magic in a real world - well, almost - which reminds one of the "olden" days. Could have been - and could be. Do you remember?

I found the "Nevermore County Gazette" using Google; the people of Nevermore County certainly have their own opinions of this author, and not very complimentary at that!

The secrets are out but not yet well-known. That certainly calls for a cautionary note to Ms. Bradford if she, indeed, intents to re-visit there for sequel-material. Beware!
