Disappointing compared to her Ballad series.

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

Slow start, but got more interesting. Quite different from most of the ballad novels, but neat to see Nora Bonesteel as a child.

It has been a few years since I read one of the Ballad mysteries; I had forgotten how complicated her stories could be -- or maybe this one was more so than usual. Partly based on McCrumb's own family history, the story line follows one family from the 1700's with a chapter from each generation interspersed with modern day chapters involving some of her usual characters, Nora Bonesteel et al.
