Another spell-binding tale from a master wordsmith.
on June 23, 2016
As usual, Ron Rash's writing makes me not want to put the book down to find out what "happens next". He captures so well, "a sense of place...and time", with this story about an area in the rural NC mountains near the end of the First World War. Sad, believable...and dark with a tragic ending. This is the second Rash book I've read (the first was a collection of short stories, "Something Rich and Strange", that I would highly recommend) and I look forward to reading more of his work. I've just started "Serena"....and it grabbed my attention in the first chapter! Without question, Ron Rash is a great storyteller!
