The Sound of Falling Leaves By Lisa Carter

The author is no doubt a gifted writer, but this book was just not for me. I love stories about the Appalachian life, but they are usually not set in modern day time. I struggled with that.
A little gentle tension between the characters can add to the story but the intense discord and hostility portrayed throughout the book bothered me after a while. People are so hateful and bitter toward others today it is something I want to escape not read more of.
I read at night to relax and fall asleep. There was murder, rape, criminal activity, violence, cruelty and avarice in many situations and scenarios. Again much like the world we live in and plastered across our news reports. Not things I want to read about or find enjoyable.
I am giving this book 4 stars it was well written and it is obvious the author put a lot of work into it but I said it just wasn’t my cup of tea.
I received this book from Kregel Publications in exchange for an honest review. The opinions stated are my own.
