A Little Gem of A Book!
This is a talented author who has created a most beguiling mystery--though it is far more, in Silk Stocking Road. It contains some of the same ingredients as To Kill A Mocking Bird. Besides bringing to life a varied and interesting cast of characters, Landreth has brought forth the social issues that fester in this small town in the years right after the great depression--social issues that plague many like places, even today.
The book captures the essence of the time period while revealing to the reader that many things haven't cahnged all that much.
Woven around the lives of people who populate this small town are many secrets, a murder that's not been solved, a romance that is rekindled, and family matters that need to be resolved.
From the opening page, this book captures the reader's imagination. Excellent writing, great book, very well done.
PS: It's been rumored that this book was burned in her home town because of some of the issues surrounding the factual inspired book. It is a work of fiction but some people felt other wise.
