Black Mountain Breakdown by Lee Smith

Crystal Spangler lives in rural Appalachia. She's the apple of her mother's eye -- not yet beautiful, but she will be. She's the most popular girl at Black Rock High. She makes cheerleader, gets good grades, and is elected beauty queen. Crystal discovers God, goes to college, and falls in love. When she comes home, she's disheveled and confused. Crystal becomes a wealthy politician's wife. But there's something calling her, drawing her back to where it all began, in the shadow of Black Mountain . . .

From the Trade Paperback edition.

What People are Saying About This

Mary Lee Settle

Black Mountain Breakdown is like a country song. It is true and real; it is loving and sad.

Black Mountain Breakdown is like a country song. It is true and real; it is loving and sad.

The closest thing to reading this would be reading Madame Bovary while listening to Loretta Lynn.
