    Another Lee Smith I find myself missing her voice when I m not reading one of her books Smith follows a family of snake handlers this time For those of you who aren t from these hills, I ll tell you snake handlers are holy rollers, people on the fringe of a Christianity that has no room for ambiguities An interview in the back of this book shows us what Smith w

    The setting mountains of Appalachia and the writing captured, then held me I wavered a lot about the main character Florida Grace After the perfection of Ivy Rowe in my first Lee Smith novel Fair and Tender Ladies , maybe my expectations were too high Grace is the daughter of a serpent handling Pentecostal traveling preacher who searches for and struggles with her own spir
