I had a really hard time getting into this gook. I think the problem was that there was no one to care about or root for. I didn't actually get into the story until the very end. And then I found it even more interesting when I read the authors note at the end about the true story. I'm not sure how this could have been done differently to draw me in, but something was not executed properly. ( )

This one was probably a lot of fun for the author to write, and I felt like she did a pretty decent job of writing in a couple of different period voices, but the voice of the main woman character didn't really fit the profile or likely experience of that character, which was bothersome to me. It was a little repetitive, and it was too long. It felt in a way like a goose chase, as the author is presenting an alternate or suspected history for a real-life crime. So it was sort of a very long voice exercise seeking to dramatize a maybe-cockamamie theory, and that's just less interesting to me than e.g. Mary Doria Russell's more authentic-feeling historical novels or something a little heavier. I think it's a fine book that just didn't land for me. ( )

Somewhat different from the other ballad series books; based on a true story. ( )

McCrumb was unknown to me before the excellent mrstreme generously shared this ARC with me. The author researched the original records of the trials behind the ballads, and presented a novelization based on what she believes to have been the "real" story of the murder of Laura Foster. It's a good story, too, if a tad repetitious in places. Not an awful lot happens, really. The primary narrator is Pauline Foster, a cousin of the murdered woman, and in McCrumb's version the person truly responsible for the death of Laura Foster and the hanging of Tom Dula, even though in a legal sense, her hands were clean. I enjoyed this book, although the sections (brief and few) narrated by Dula's defense attorney Zebulon Vance contributed very little to the story, with the exception of the very last one. A solid 3 1/2 star read.

Actually, I'd rate this a 3.5. I enjoyed the story, characters, atmosphere, etc., but felt there should be a little tighter editing to avoid repetition.

I appreciate Sharyn McCrumb's research into ballads like this one and would have liked an epilogue about her process and discovery as well. ( )
