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.

The Ballad of Frankie Silver. Frances Silver, a girl of 18, was charged in 1832 with murdering her husband. But can the miscarriages of justice be prevented?

My career had prospered, and I like to think that my ability had as much to do with my success as my family connections.

My career had prospered, and I like to think that my ability had as much to do with my success as my family connections nough how to act the part, and there were times when I went so far as to forget that I was an outsider in the ranks of the aristocracy. 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.

What he finds The Ballad of Frankie Silver is the only Sharyn McCrumb novel I've read. And that's to my loss. That's why it deserves tagging as history.

This book is dedicated. for the murder of the. Clutter family. The Ballad of Frankie Silver

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.

In 1832, an 18-year-old Frankie Silver was charged with murdering her young husband. In 1833, she became the first woman in the state of North Carolina to be hanged for murder. But was she guilty? More than 100 years later, Tennessee sheriff Spencer Arrowood is determined to reveal the truth behind this unanswered question.

I love Sharyn McCrumb's books. 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.

Thought provoking book. This book was very telling in the way in which the court system worked in the 1800s and how similar things are (in some ways) today. We have come a long way, but we still have a tendency to convict the innocent based on preconceived notions & opinions relating to their background and family history rather than by reasonable doubt. Regular folks are not educated on the law as much as they should be and rely heavily (and pay) attorneys to protect their rights and inform them as to legal procedure, but that doesn't always happen. We should all make an extra effort to learn about our individual liberties.

I have avidly devoured Sharyn McCrumb's "Ballad Series" books ever since the first one, "If Ever I Return, Pretty Peggy-O", which got me totally hooked. (I also enjoy the more light-hearted Elizabeth McPherson series, but not quite as much). I like the description of the Appalachian Mountains People and the passionate way Ms. McCrumb call attention on their plight. In the "The Rosewood Casket" she succeeds quite well in making you feel for the poor white farmers ruined either by heartless industrialists and opportunists or because they have to stand by helplessly when "endangered species" raptors decimate their livestock. In this newest effort, she makes the point that the Hillbillies are the one minority group that doesn't get "political correctness" protection - she never mentions the phrase "white trash" but it is implied. Her argument is that these people are fair game for minority slurs ("He's just a redneck") and do not get equal justice under the law. If the State has to execute someone on death row, it can't be a woman, it can't be a black, but it's OK if it's a poor white. And that that is true now as it was true back in 1833 when Frankie Silver was the first woman hanged for murder in that particular neck of the woods. One does feel for Frankie Silver, but in Fate Harkryder as a poor, put-upon hero, Ms. McCrumb has chosen badly. If all hillbillies are like him, his brothers who let him be executed for a crime they committed, or that "redneck" (in real life) who shot a poor Japanese student on a Halloween night a few years back, not to mention Susan Smith, who killed her own children (also in real life) and tried to blame a black man, are the specimens of these people we should feel for - I'm sorry, but I can't dredge up any sympathy for them at all. Other than that, the story is well-written, with nice twists and turns, specially the parts about Frankie herself, who's as likable a heroine as can be found. And as always, I love the parts with Nora Bonesteel and her Sight. So, this was a slight disappointment - on the same theme, "If I'd Kill Him When I Met Him" made the point for contemporary justice much more poignantly - but I'm still looking forward to Sharyn McCrumb's next Appalachian novel. Keep them coming, please, Ms. McCrumb!

Absolutely loved this book as I have loved all of McCrumb's Ballad series. Historical fiction at its finest...told through several perspectives over several generations. I am continuing to read through the Ballad books, now on my 7th in the series. Frankie Silver's story, to date, is my favorite. I highly recommend McCrumb's books to those who, like me, are lovers of history, great story telling, and all things Appalachian.

Sharyn McCrumb brought this spine chilling, true tale to life in her novel about Frankie Silver. The drama isn't too heavy, nor is the story telling bogged down with too much fact. She was also able to balance the present with the past as Sheriff Arrowood compares the fate of a man condemned to the electric chair with the miserable end of a young woman's life during a time where poverty most certainly contributed to whether or not you went free or hanged. Very haunting story that will leave mystery lovers eager to visit the old cabin site where Charles Silver died.

My friend's mother mentioned that this was a book that I should read since I had an interest in Appalachian history and in writing historical fiction. Without a doubt, this is a masterful handling of a very interesting episode in NC history and a rendering of non-fiction within a fictional context. A really cool and compelling way of presenting a historical event. Sharyn McCrumb is definitely one of the best in the genre. This is an under-stated and under-rated title in Ms. McCrumb's considerable oeuvre.

Mr.Twister
well written. written from the point of view of a county court clerk of the period. my clerk loved it and bought copies of for other court clerks he knew.

Great look at the early Appalachian culture,well written and researched. Quite interesting and I found it hard to put down. A long story well done, based upon a true story of Frankie Silver.
Sharyn McCrumb is a wonderful storyteller.
