I never would have read this book, I think, if it hadn't been an assignment for one of my classes. To my delight, not only did I enjoy it, I think it was one of the best books I've read. Smith has awesome characterization skills, and a rich appreciation and respect for her setting (Appalachia). I will be reading this again.
