The Sound of Falling Leaves Vers an unnerving connection between a murder case and a long ago disappearance Tessa gets a glimpse into an almost forgotten world encounters a corrupt small town political dynasty and finds superstition and prejudice at every turnShe's also drawn to Zeke the handsome but enigmatic orchard This is a very interesting novel about people living in an isolated Appalachian community The plot structure is mostly about characters their past and how it determines their present actions as well as present relationships There is a bit of a mystery but even that is based on the past events of a belligerent family having political and law enforcement control of the areaThe main characters Zeke and Tessa both have huge back stories These historical events are revealed with painstaking slowness The fire that changed Tessa's life is referred to obliuely for so long I searched online to see if this novel was a seuel Finally about halfway through the book we learn all about the fire I wish it had been given to us much earlier I got so frustrated at Tessa's actions not knowing the details of why she behaved as she did I felt I could not really appreciate her struggles during the first half of the book Zeke also has a back story His is so complex that it took a great deal of explaining near the end of the novel I always like it when I learn something when I read a novel and this time it was about the forming of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park Many families were uprooted and displaced Whole communities were forced to move It made me think about personal rights and the government action of eminent domainI think the strength of this novel is the setting I was fascinated by the long standing culture of the people living in this Appalachian community Carter did a good job of transporting me into a part of the country so different from my own There is a hint there might be a seuel I will be looking for itThis is a novel for readers who like one revolving around character character revelation character interaction and ultimately character transformation through the gospel There is some suspense but it is not the focus of the plot Potential readers should be aware that rape is a large part of past events in the community While not described the solving of that part of the mystery may trigger intense emotions There is a good discussion guide at the end of the book to help readers think about the many issues the novel includesI received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the publisher My comments are an independent and honest review
