A Conversation with Mountain Women

A Conversation with Mountain Women August 30, 2013

If Mee-Maw was the one you loved nearly better than Jesus, if you are familiar with Black Mountain or Sapelo Island, if you’ve ever been pearling on the river, or stood under the shower of a waterfall in the Smokies, or if you’ve ever had an encounter with a ghost or a Melungeon, then don’t miss this opportunity for swapping stories infused with mountain lore.

-Amy Greene, author of “Bloodroot”

 “The Storycatcher is a riveting tale of right, wrong, and vengeance. Restless souls (on Earth, as well as from the spirit world) can find peace only through justice, and at times, only by working together. Ann Hite writes brilliantly about the human condition – in this world and the next.”

-Amy Hill Hearth author of Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women’s Literary Society

    Yeah James,
    I thought the same thing.
    Does Grahms have any on order yet? I might forgo Amazon.

    • Doesn’t your wife work there? I’m sure she can get you a discount! Heck if they like, I’ll even come do another signing for them!
