September 2008
Filled to the brim with tension, one can feel the people's hunger in Kentucky in 1938, feel their love and hate for others, and feel their fears of racial cruelty. Olivia not only has to keep her business afloat when there is no money but she also has to keep her grandson, her friends, and transplanted silver-faced wolves safe from those who want to harm them. A very literary mystery and one of the most intense stories I've read in a long time. -- Susan Wasson, Bookworks, Albuquerque, NM

Description


Olivia Harker Cross owns a mountain -- or thinks she does -- in Pope County, Kentucky, a land where wolves howl at night. But now someone is killing the wolves of Big Foley Mountain, and Olivia is beginning to realize how much of her own bitter history she has never understood -- her mother's madness or her daughter's flight to California leaving her to raise William, her beloved grandson. But most of all, Olivia doesn't understand her town's rage, for Olivia has very real and dangerous enemies. Now this proud, lonely woman will face her mother and daughter, her neighbors, and the wolf hunters. And when she does, she'll ignite a conflict that will embroil an entire community -- and change her life in the most astonishing ways.
