Laurel resides in the Appalachian Mountains with her brother and lives a difficult life due to the perceptions of a birthmark.  Laurel becomes intrigued with someone she discovers in the woods.  That someone changes both of their lives forever.

I love Ron Rash's work, but this one was a bit of a disappointment.  His ability to create vivid scenery and atmosphere usually keeps me glued to another time and place.  This time I was bored.  The last 1/4 saved the book.

Thoughts of Joy


  1. I listened to this one too and felt the narrator affected my enjoyment of it.

    1. Bermudaonion ~ Hmmmm. I don't have any good or bad memories of the narrator. They certainly can make or break a book.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
