I can only think to classify this as a story tellin fictional read There isn t a whole lot of dialogue but there is a whole lot of storytelling from six different perspectives You can t call it a novel you can t call it fantasy certainly not chick lit or magical It s downright good story tellin It s a telling of people involved in the life of Myra Mayes Odum A wild and spirited mountain girl of the Appalachia region We read about Myra from the perspective of a child hood friend who loves her with all his heart but the feelings are not mutual We hear from Myra s granny who raises Myra and knows her wild spirit cannot be tamed much like Myra s mama who met her maker very early on in Myra s life We skip around in time and hear the story from Myra s twin s and the hardship they endure when they are taken from their mama We hear from Myra herself and what she went through and perhaps some closure on why she ended up where she did And finally we hear from John Odum Myra s husband who paid his dues with a violent incident that set a path for change in all their livesI didn t really think the publishers book description was all that fitting to what the story actually was about My own perception though The jacket claims this book is about the magic touch that is in Myra s family There really isn t much magic in this book This book at times is depressing moody and haunting With that said I couldn t put it down Some things that bugged me were that the paragraphs were insanely long often one or two paragraphs per page There aren t chapters there are books with all the different first person stories It was hard to find a place to take a break for the night Also the Appalachia language was strange at first I sure felt dumb downed a bit With the negatives I pointed out I have to say the author is a fantastic teller of stories I will be anxious to see what she may write for her next book She certainly is uniue
