Ballad novels volume 4.
Pub. Date:
Randall Stargill lies dying on his Appalachian farm, and his four sons have come home to build him a coffin from his precious cache of rosewood. Like a hovering vulture, a local real estate developer is readying an offer for the farm. And mountain wise-woman Nora Bonesteel, Randall's sweetheart of long ago, brings to light a small box to be buried with Randall--a box containing human bones. Thus the stage is set for a tale of family strife, dark secrets, and eerie legends among mountain people torn between tradition and change. This hauntingly beautiful novel evokes the spiritually charged mountains where the night wind still sounds its eternal song.
