Backwoods Kentucky in 1917 is the setting of this rich Fellowship of Southern Writers Award winner. Irish-American Saul Sullivan falls in love with Vine, a quiet Cherokee woman, and they set about creating a life while dealing with prejudice from both communities, as well as the jealousy of Saul’s brother. Kate Forbes narrates this story with a soft Kentucky twang that captures the dialect and pacing of Southern storytellers. From Vine’s point of view, listeners learn of hardscrabble life in the hills among the Cherokee and whites during WWI. Forbes brings Appalachia to life with vivid descriptions of the countryside, farming practices, and characters. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
