A Judgment of Whispers (A Mary Crow Novel)
I've finished "A Judgment of Whispers" the 7th book in her Mary Crow series by Sallie Bissell.
Whispers abound at the ancient Spanish Oak. To those who know how to listen, it tells secrets of vanquished conquistadors, Cherokee witches, and the long-unsolved murder of ten-year-old Teresa Ewing. Whispers also thrive in the town of Hartsville — rumors that Teresa’s killer still walks free.
While running for District Attorney, Mary Crow finds the whispers starting to swirl around her. Did one of her friends cover up that twenty-year-old murder? Does her campaign have blood on its hands? As new evidence is discovered, Mary realizes that the only way to save her reputation is to find the true killer and silence the vicious gossip that has trapped so many people in lies.
About the Author
Though I'm a flat-land Southerner (Nashville, Tennessee), I've been fascinated by the Appalachian Mountains since vacationing there in my childhood. Twenty years ago, I had an opportunity to move to Western North Carolina, so I packed my Tennessee bags and basically, never looked back. I soaked up the mountain culture, the Cherokee Indians, and the haunting beauty of the mountains. Ultimately, all these things wound up in a book called "In The Forest Of Harm" which introduced my protagonist, half-Cherokee Mary Crow. Six (soon to be seven) books later, neither the mountains nor Mary have lost their fascination for me. It's been a privilege to write about her, and about this amazing area of the country. When I'm not writing, I enjoy tennis, hiking, Big Foot sightings and a good cup of coffee. Love to hear from my readers, so drop me a line on my website, salliebissell.com!
