Tuccelli explores the bounds of race and community in the Blue Ridge Mountains from the mid-19th to mid-20th centuries. The story moves back and forth between loosely related characters whose racial lineages have some mixture of white, black, and Cherokee. Donna Postel gives a good performance overall, but the novel might have been better served by multiple narrators as Postel doesn’t always make strong distinctions between the different time periods and characters. Consequently, the book has a slightly confusing and choppy quality. The audiobook also suffers from the fact that Tuccelli relies heavily on a family tree instead of textual clues to make familial relationships clear.
