I really, really enjoyed this book. I can't believe I've passed it by so many times.

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.)

I gave this to my sister-in-law to read.
