The Pearls of Snake Hollow (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 22, 2017 03:32PM
Description: On Thursday, the 26th day of June, 1952, someone murdered Merle Pearl. Unaware of the danger that threatens their lives, Merle’s three daughters return home to Snake Hollow, a quirky, backwoods town in the Ozark mountains, to hunt the killer of their papa. Confusing messages from the townsfolk complicate their treacherous journey. The Pearls of Snake Hollow is a riveting, playful tale of good and evil, but you might not figure out which is which until the surprising climax. Phillips has caught the images of backwoods American existence and brought them to us shimmering in the half-light of wry humor, pathos, and a gentle humanity. The Pearls of Snake Hollow is metaphor and legend, reminiscent of the writing of Sharyn McCrumb at her best. A rollicking read.
