In bitterly divided western North Carolina, Confederate troops execute thirteen men and boys suspected of Unionism. The Shelton Laurel Massacre, as it came to be known, is a microcosm of the horrors of civil war--neighbor against neighbor and violence at one's own front door. Told by those who lived it--the colonel's wife, a helpless witness; the jealous second-in-command who gives the fatal order; the canny mountain woman who cares only for her people and her land; the conscript, a haunted man seeking redemption; and the mute girl, whose folk magic yields an unexpected result--these voices offer an intimate glimpse into the lives of five people tangled in history's web, caught up together in love and hate.

Vicki Lane's previous novels include Signs in the Blood, four other Elizabeth Goodweather Mysteries, and The Day of Small Things. Her work has been praised for authentic dialogue, evocative detail, and rich, clear, intelligent writing that captures the essence of the North Carolina mountains and their people. Vicki teaches with the Great Smokies Writing Program (UNC-Asheville) and at Wildacres Writing Workshops.
