A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash
My rating: 3.6 of 5 stars
This is told in a "Southern" voice which I normally don't care for but, this book took me in. I loved all the voices - Adelaide; the town midwife, Jess;the 9 yo boy who wants to protect his older mute brother and, most particularly Clem; the town sheriff. The ending was a bit predictable but it was so well told that I stayed engaged right until the end. Excellent writing makes it hard to believe that this a debut novel.
