The Pearls of Snake Hollow

Posted on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 | No Comments

On Thursday, the 26th day of June, 1952, someone murdered Merle Pearl. Unaware of the danger that threatens their lives, Merle's three daughters return home to Snake Hollow, a quirky, backwoods town in the Ozark mountains, to hunt the killer of their papa. Confusing messages from the townsfolk complicate their treacherous journey. The Pearls of Snake Hollow is a riveting, playful tale of good and evil, but you might not figure out which is which until the surprising climax. Phillips has caught the images of backwoods American existence and brought them to us shimmering in the half-light of wry humor, pathos, and a gentle humanity. The Pearls of Snake Hollow is metaphor and legend, reminiscent of the writing of Sharyn McCrumb at her best. "The Pearls of Snake Hollow is a delight. Madelon Phillips has caught the images of backwoods American existence and brought them to us shimmering in the half-light of wry humor, pathos, and a gentle humanity. The story is a mystery underlined with the unnerving fervor of fanaticism and the conviction of three young sisters who seek to find justice and defeat evil. It is metaphor and legend, reminiscent of the writing of Sharyn McCrumb at her best." --J. L. Bautista, author of "Fiestas," and the "The Road, and Nothing More."
