"The ""New York Times ""Bestseller"
Set in the Appalachian wilderness and blending legends and
folklore with high suspense, this stellar novel, "The Ballad of
Frankie Silver," is considered one of McCrumb's crowning
In 1833 Frankie Silver was an eighteen-year-old girl convicted
of murder in Burke County, North Carolina. Through a detailed
investigation, the local sheriff, and soon all the townsfolk,
discover reason to question her guilt---but the wheels of justice
were mercilessly unstoppable, and she was hanged.
Now, more than a century later, another woman is convicted of
murder in the lush hills of Tennessee. Her life is in the hands of
Spencer Arrowood, a man who begins to discover that the convictions
of these two women have deep and haunting parallels. Although
Frankie's fate cannot be changed, there is still time to alter the
fate of another innocent woman.
In a voice that could only be Sharyn McCrumb's, the worlds of
these two murders, these two women, intersect in this densely
plotted and lyrical novel--and characters, generations, and history
are breathlessly painted against an Appalachian canvas.
