I love Sharyn McCrumb's books. I like the description of the Appalachian Mountains People and the passionate way Ms. McCrumb call attention on their plight. The Ballad novels that I have read are just wonderful, but this book is just so depressing. This is not a criticism of the writing at all. Others may praise this book, because Ms. McCrumb is an extraordinary story-teller. But for me, I had a hard time getting through it. It is such a tale of justice miscarried.

My family was as good as any of theirs, but the wealth was lacking. After two generations, the lack of a fortune removes one from polite society, so I took care that I should acquire one, for I had my sons to think of.

The Ballad of Frankie Silver. Wayne Silver for Kona. This dreadful, dark and dismal day Has swept my glories all away; My sun goes down, my days are past, And I must leave this world at last. A rumor was prevalent in Burke County that Silver wrote some verses which were tantamount to a confession of her guilt and read them while on the scaffold to the surrounding throng just before she was executed.
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. 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.
