Description

A strikingly sincere portrait of a town and its buried secrets from an outstanding new voice in southern fiction In a North Carolina mountain town filled with moonshine and rotten husbands, Sadie Blue is only the latest girl to face a dead-end future at the mercy of a dangerous drunk. She's been married to Roy Tupkin for fifteen days, and she knows now that she should have listened to the folks who said he was trouble. But when a stranger sweeps in and knocks the world off-kilter for everyone in town, Sadie begins to think there might be more to life than being Roy's wife. As stark and magnificent as Appalachia itself, If the Creek Don't Rise is a bold and beautifully layered debut about a dusty, desperate town finding the inner strength it needs to outrun its demons. The folks of Baines Creek will take you deep into the mountains with heart, honesty, and homegrown grit.

Professional reviews

"Through shifting perspectives delivered by dual narrators, this audiobook examines life in an Appalachian town. Narrators Tom Stechschulte and Kate Forbes capture the diverse and engaging characters who tell the story of Sadie Blue, a young woman who realizes very quickly that she never should have married Roy Tupkin. The two narrators portray townspeople of various ages, occupations, and backgrounds who are kin, friends, enemies, or unlikely companions. Their pacing captures the slow speed of daily life in this part of the world, and their delivery of the first-person points of view elicits the listener's empathy for each character's feelings and intentions.
