Read full description of the books:
This is my second book by Sharyn McCrumb, and I liked this one best. She has such a way of transporting me to backwoods Tennessee. I feel like I'm sitting on somebody's porch, listening to Uncle Asa tell stories. This story just meanders on down the hill, taking its own sweet time. In this book, there are actually several tales being told, each a complete story on its own, but woven together to create a fascinating tapestry. There are plenty of diversions and side trips, just to keep things interesting. I really felt like I got to know the characters, and I liked them. I rooted for each to succeed and find his or her way to someplace good. In the end, they all did, even though many of those good places were completely unexpected, at least for me. I was left with a good feeling.
