“In honor of Billy May’s final request, Jessie has invited an agency that works with children with developmental disabilities to establish a wilderness retreat on top of Crutcher Mountain. Everything has come together beautifully, until a series of strange events threatens to shut down the operation.”

Fans of Melinda Clayton’s first novel, Appalachian Justice, will not be able to put down this sequel until the last page has been turned. As a child, Jessie was rescued by Billy May Platte (a fascinating character in her own right) after suffering horrendous abuse at the hand of her stepfather. Now, as an adult, Jessie comes back to her hometown. Crutcher Mountain is just as beautifully written as the first novel, and includes more in-depth characterization, more twists and turns, more everything!

The story is amazing, extremely fast-moving and complex yet easy to follow. The folks are real, the setting is amazing. Ms. Clayton has outdone herself on this book and we look forward to many, many more to come.
