|Reviews of The Hangman's
“Elegiac…Ms. McCrumb writes with quiet fire and maybe a little mountain magic…Like Nora, she plucks the mysteries from people's lives and works these dark narrative threads into Appalachian legends older than the hills. Like every true storyteller, she has the Sight.”
-The New York Times Book Review
"A haunting novel…Rich, complex…A major book by a major talent in the field."
-The Denver Post
"Compelling… Sharyn McCrumb turns serious as she explores death from many angles."
"McCrumb portrays people so well it makes your heart ache.”
"Intense and heartbreaking.”
