A USA Today bestseller

Award-winning Southern writer Sharyn McCrumb is a New York Times best-selling author who's won widespread critical acclaim for her Appalachian Ballad novels. In The Rosewood Casket, a farmer named Randall Stargill has fallen into a coma.

Complications arise, however, when clairvoyant neighbor Nora Bonesteel brings her own disturbing contribution to the coffin: a small box containing a child's skeleton.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Full of beautifully observed details of everyday life which anchor the mystical moments and keep us rooted in reality.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“What’s most striking about this engaging, deeply moving story is not the plot or even the vividly rendered setting; it’s the aptness of McCrumb’s observations about people and life…McCrumb’s love for the mystical beauty of modern Appalachia, her deep affection for the rugged people who live there, and her fascination with the history of the region add depth and charm to a story that’s warm without being sentimental.” Booklist (starred review)
“Grave, poignant, and altogether magical.” Kirkus Reviews
