Eliabeth Goodweather has wrapped herself in the serenity
of Full Circle Farm, safe amid the idyllic fields of herbs
and flowers on Pinnacle Mountain. The puzzling death of a
neighbor's son shatters that peace and sends her on a
life-changing quest in search of a missing shotgun.
Traveling the winding roads into the hidden coves and
hollows of the Appalachians, Elizabeth finds that the
laurel thickets and rocky hillsides are full of
surprises--serpent handlers, star children,
tongues-talkers, sang hunters, militia men--and murder.
