Описание

Award-winning Southern writer Sharyn McCrumb is a New York Times best-selling author who’s won widespread critical acclaim for her Appalachian Ballad novels. In The Rosewood Casket, a farmer named Randall Stargill has fallen into a coma. As his family gathers to prepare for the inevitable, his four sons work on a handmade casket and their wives sew a quilt to line it. Complications arise, however, when clairvoyant neighbor Nora Bonesteel brings her own disturbing contribution to the coffin: a small box containing a child’s skeleton.

  • (3/5)
    I generally like McCrumb’s tales of small town crime and relationships in the Tennessee mountains, but this one – the third one I’ve read – is more slow-going and less interesting than the first two. It concerns the four sons who come home to attend the death of their father and make him a coffin, the girl next door who can’t give up her family’s land, and the buried bodies (literally and figuratively) in both their families’ pasts. The suspenseful chase and climax feels a little contrived. But I do like her poetic language and the way she weaves the past with the present, so The Rosewood Casket is still a very pleasant read.

    Another of the ballad novels, Nora Bonesteel brings a small box of bones to be buried with Randall Stargill. Using Indian legends and the stories about Daniel Boone, McCrumb presents a mystery novel with family secrets and tragedies.

    Although I didn't find this book that suspenseful, I did enjoy the story. I really enjoy Ms. McCrumb's writing, and the way she introduces a bit of the supernatural in her stories with her wonderful Nora Bonesteel. I also love the setting high in the Appalachian mountains. It sounds like beautiful country. This is a book that depicts the way small family farms are disappearing throughout North America. It's about a very old mystery, and a modern-day tragedy. It's also about a family of four boys who learn to rediscover themselves when they have to return home to their ailing father. The story is bittersweet, and the legends are wonderful.

    The ballad novels are amazing and The Rosewood Casket does not fail readers. The twists and turns and the characters are incredibly memorable.

    Another Appalachian mystery with seer Nora Bonesteel. Randall Stargill is dying on his farm and his 4 sons have come home to build his casket of rosewood. A local real estate developer hovers, and Nora Bonesteel brings a mysterious box to be buried with Randall. Very good.
