Read by Merritt Hicks
A lyrical, heart-rending tale from Ron Rash, the bestselling author of Serena.
"Merritt Hicks brings a quiet beauty to the voices of this pair, hers with vocal cords, his with a flute. Charged with depicting mountain folks, a German immigrant, and a good-old-boy politician, Hicks does not flinch. She brings doubt, fear, and genuine love to her vocal depictions. Listeners will be struck by the power of the human capacity for both good and evil. Dynamically performed, this is a story to return to time and again." - Audiofile Magazine
