Rapture of Canaan (Oprah's Book Club)

My family has some deep Appalachian roots, and my stepmother and her family fall into the Pentacostal speaking-in-tongues group. So that always interests me, in a freaky sort of way. :)
It was very easy for me to conjure up pictures of the characters in this book and their homes and tobacco fields. I wanted to shake my head many times at the senseless guilt that James and Ninah felt over things. It's a different world, but one that actually exists.
The barbed wire and grave punishments astounded me. Wow. And Canaan. Very unique twist there. (I don't want to give anything away.)
