Fiction • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

A game warden's interest in the ancient Ghosthead Oak—and the property it sits on—could lead to fateful decisions for several people, including his deputy, a veteran who was abused as a boy, and the titular widow. Tom Stechschulte narrates with a gentle hint of a Southern drawl, keeping the characters interesting until the story begins to coalesce around them. As it gradually does so, it becomes a satisfying experience, even though many listeners will know where it must go. Listeners should stay alert at the end for a coda that wraps up one last plot twist. A story of standing up against corrupt authority is laced with ironic humor and strong characters.
