What they're saying on Amazon. . .
"The pacing of the story never lags and the characters are all brought to life with excellent writing...detailed but never boring. I recommend this book for anyone interested in mysteries, local stories, historical events," according to one reader.
"It flows from the first page to the last, bringing the reader right into the minds and actions of the characters involved in an engaging and tangled event that cost one man his life, another nearly his freedom and a woman her reputation."
"Rather than a dry rehashing of moldering facts, the artful interweaving of fact and fiction make this book a real page-turner!"
"The most interesting part of all, what became of Junior Edd Thompson, the boy accused of murdering Tom Pratt. I was absolutely floored by that part of the book. Floored."
"Loved the fact that it was historically so well researched and a part of the author's own history. The book told so much more than just the facts of the case. It gave one a sense of what life was like in this town and for these characters at this time in history. Each character was well developed and I left feeling like I had met them all personally."
"I saved her meticulous endnotes for another afternoon's reading. That was an unexpected treat. The notes provide their own fascinating story, adding more than a few asterisks to the chronicle of North Carolina history. Moreover, the notes provide crucial cultural connective tissue that greatly enriches the story. This was a town in the jaws of social change, and the issues it wrestled with would soon resound throughout the South."
