This book brought an interesting uestion to my mind Do you blame bland story telling on the writer or the character when the book is told in first person Okay so I only entertained the uestion as a way of explaining how the first part of this three sectioned book could be so engaging so vivid and the rest of the book almost mind numbing even with a plot straight out of my favorite genre Southern Gothic Yes it is the author s fault if four of her six characters almost ruin a great tale when they spend too much time retelling without bringing anything new to the story develop and lose personal insight for no apparent reason other than ease of story telling and worst of all don t follow the beautiful rhythm set up by the first section of the bookGreene knows her setting and that is one of the saving graces of this book The towns and isolated cabins of Bloodroot Mountain enliven the slowest moving parts of this book The idea of weaving together each of the characters own narratives is intriguing and the first third of the book shows that Greene knows how to tell a good Southern Gothic story without literally telling the story

There are parts of this book that are amazing Greene s talent and ability are undeniable There are some lines that are just stunning I don t have a problem with the seuence or the multiple voices as other reviews do and agree that this book is similar in structure and sometimes voice to those by Lee Smith I was particularly reminded of Oral HistoryMy problems are two fold First while I like how certain minor story lines from individual sections came back again in later sections I m still not sure how it all works together or what I was supposed to gain from the book Ending with John Odom in some ways makes me angry um he abused his wife and locked her under the houseare we supposed to just forgive him that I also never really got why Doug was so important that he deserved a whole section but then never really came back in any relevant waySecond why does ever revered Apalachian book necessarily contain a wild and beautiful mountain girl who hooks her wagon to the star of a handsome yet mean man There are so so many books in which this is the main story line If we were teaching an Ap lit class there could be a whole unit on the abused mountain woman Granted this is a real story It happened It happens But not to everyone and the focus of this story in so many volumes makes it feel that way some times Why must the girl always be brokenFinally I would have liked for the modern sections taking place in 2010 and a few years before to feel a bit modern I m a woman living in Apalachia I know what it is to be born here grow up here live here still Those sections felt so much like the Byrdie sections that it was like nothing ever changesOkay all that being said I really did like the book I m interested to see what Greene puts out next
