I enjoyed the book until the end. I do not like how it ended. It was too obvious, too abrupt, too sad, and too unfair. The Chauncey chapters were annoying and pointless, and it was because of his pointlessness in all other aspects that made the ending all-too-predictable.

Generally good, but the abrupt ending left me with the feeling that the story wasn't finished. ( )

Beautifully haunting story by Ron Rash, author of Serena. Quiet and touching, the story unfolds at a time right before the war with the "Huns" ended. Well described characters that just want to be happy...... But they live in The Cove, where everything there lives under the literal, and figurative mountain shadows, rarely ever seeing the sun. Some say that everything in the cove, from the vegetation to the animals, are damned. And maybe they are.....

3.5 stars for a very interesting story filled with heartbreak. ( )

I have never read Ron Rash before but I read this one because I am from the town of Mars Hill and I went to Mars Hill College so I was incredibly interested. I thought it was good but not great. One other reviewer who is also from Madison County said they do not talk like they do in the book there in real life and I have to say I agree although people who are from back in the mountains, live in the coves, and that are not main stream Madison Countiers might. I had somewhat of a hard time picturing the town of Mars Hill in my head as it is portrayed in the book because the layout he describes is not how the town looks today. I know the magic part was a major plot point but again people from Madison County and especially Mars Hill are not as judgmental as he made them out to be. In fact, because of the college I think they are more open-minded than some that live in the little mountain communities that surround that area.

The cove, believed to be cursed land, is nestled within the Smokey Mts near Mars Hill, Tenn. Hank and Laurel Shelton, brother and sister, have work a family farm near the cove ever since their parents died. Laurel who was born with a large birth mark has always been shunned, local residents believing that she was a mountain witch since she was born with the mark of the devil. One day, shortly before the end of WW1, Laurel rescues a vagabond found unconscious in the cove stung by a swarm of yellow jackets. When she takes him to their cabin to heal him, she also takes into their home the man's secret, which will tear the local community apart.
Ron Rash continues to develop beautiful examples of Southern literary fiction. He has been likened to notable authors such as John Steinbeck and Cormac McCarthy. I found myself easily transported into this book and the life of its characters. The author was adept at building suspense toward the novel's climax. If you have never read Ron Rash, what are you waiting for? ( )

Rash develops his story masterfully; the large cast of characters is superbly realized, as is the xenophobia that accompanies the war, and Rash brings the various narrative threads together at the conclusion of the novel with formidable strength and pathos. Essential for fans of literary fiction.

The Cove is nevertheless a powerful novel, with some of the mysterious moral weight of Carson McCullers, along with a musical voice that belongs to Rash alone.
 
But “The Cove” is a less intricate, nuanced book than “Serena,” perhaps because it is tethered to a real and freakish historical occurrence.
