Description

Edgar and Macavity Award-winning author Sharyn McCrumb transports you to legend-rich Appalachia with her suspense-packed Ballad series. In The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter, a young minister's wife struggles to understand a sudden, unexplained death. Laura Bryce has lived in the small east Tennessee community such a short time that she still feels like an outsider. But when there is violence on the Underhill farm, the sheriff calls on her to represent the church. He will handle the bodies, but she must comfort the bereaved. However, the unspeakable carnage she confronts in the farmhouse will push her down a rocky pathway of danger and heartache. Sharyn McCrumb, compared by critics to William Faulkner, Joyce Carol Oates, and Eudora Welty, creates evocative tales and strong, complex characters. Narrator Sally Darling provides the perfect voice for the beleaguered but resilient people who inhabit the hills and valleys of Appalachia.

Professional reviews

"If your preferred listening is novels, unabridged and unadorned--The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter is an excellent addition to Recorded Books' collection of outstanding mystery novels. Set in Tennessee's Appalachia, this is a richly textured tale of dark family secrets and violent death. Sally Darling nicely captures the regional flavor; she also provides the listener with a credible and ultimately charming vocal presence as the "teller of the tale." This is especially beneficial since about ninety percent of the text consists of narrative or descriptive passages. B.R. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
