"The nameless girl sang, her voice cascading over notes and words as a brook over smooth river-rock...."
In a mining town filled with forgotten men and used up women, a handcuffed girl and her deaf guard arrive just as a blizzard descends. Lured by the girl's singing and driven by an old obsession, one man releases an ancient spirit that could destroy the town and the estate it supports.
As the year wears on, the murderous spirit tightens its grip on the town and the estate, living on an ever-rising wind that descends from the mountain. Brave and holy men seek to destroy the evil, but few return alive. Those who do return have few wits left.
When others fail, a donkey handler named Clem must risk the simple, peaceful life he's carved for himself to save it from destruction. Unfortunately, Clem knows that when the wind comes down the mountain, even the most steadfast men can't resist its call.

After reading this 'novella', I feel like I need to know more about these characters; what happens next; maybe even more about their pasts as it seems there are connections and ties that are tantalizingly eluded to. I think Ms. Davis has written a very well paced, and well developed story with excellent characters that simply make me want more... Sequel please!!
I loved this book. Though in fact it was a short book, it was very well writen and kept me thoroughly entertained. I was vey pleased and I applaud the creativity in this mind play of a trgically sad story. Well done!
