The Curse of Crow Hollow

Billy Coffey (Author)
Available

Description

With the "profound sense of Southern spirituality" he is known for (Publishers Weekly), Billy Coffey draws us into a town where good and evil--and myth and reality--intertwine in unexpected ways.

Everyone in Crow Hollow knows of Alvaretta Graves, the old widow who lives in the mountain. Many call her a witch; others whisper she's insane. Everyone agrees the vengeance Alvaretta swore at her husband's death hovers over them all. That vengeance awakens when teenagers stumble upon Alvaretta's cabin, incurring her curse. Now a sickness moves through the Hollow. Rumors swirl that Stu Graves has risen for revenge. And the people of Crow Hollow are left to confront not only the darkness that lives on the mountain, but the darkness that lives within themselves.

"Coffey spins a wicked tale . . . [The Curse of Crow Hollow] blends folklore, superstition, and subconscious dread in the vein of Shirley Jackson's 'The Lottery.'"

--Kirkus Reviews

Reviews

'Coffey spins a wicked tale . . . [The Curse of Crow Hollow] blends folklore, superstition, and subconscious dread in the vein of Shirley Jackson's 'The Lottery.''--Kirkus Reviews
'An edge-of-your-seat, don't-read-in-the-dark book with amazing characters . . . Coffey takes readers on a wild roller-coaster ride without ever going over the top.'--RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 stars, TOP PICK!
"In the first line of the book, Coffey's hillbilly narrator invites his accidental guest (that would be us, the readers) to 'come on out of that sun' and set a spell. The spell is immediate. We are altogether bewitched by the teller, by his lyrical telling and by the tale itself, whose darkness is infernal . . . To Christians and non-Christians alike, this roaring tale will leave a powerful mark."--BookPage
'. . . conjures a sense of genteel Southern charm . . . this creepy tale will delight enthusiasts of Tosca Lee's DEMON and other horror stories.'--Library Journal
