The Curse of Crow Hollow

by | Read by Gabe Wicks

Published by Thomas Nelson

With the “profound sense of Southern spirituality” he is known for (Publishers Weekly), Billy Coffey draws us into a town where good and evil—and myth and reality—intertwine in unexpected ways. Everyone in Crow Hollow knows of Alvaretta Graves, the old widow who lives in the mountain. Many call her a witch; others whisper she’s insane. Everyone agrees the vengeance Alvaretta swore at her husband’s death hovers over them all. That vengeance awakens when teenagers stumble upon Alvaretta’s cabin, incurring her curse. Now a sickness moves through the Hollow. Rumors swirl that Stu Graves has risen for revenge. And the people of Crow Hollow are left to confront not only the darkness that lives on the mountain, but the darkness that lives within themselves. “Coffey spins a wicked tale . . . [The Curse of Crow Hollow] blends folklore, superstition, and subconscious dread in the vein of Shirley Jackson’s ‘The Lottery.’” —Kirkus Reviews

The Curse of Crow Hollow

Narrator Gabe Wicks evokes both old-fashioned Appalachian hospitality and barely concealed menace in this suspenseful story. The audiobook's unnamed narrator invites the listener to sit a spell as he slowly unfolds the story of what happens when four teenagers bring the wrath of a supposed witch down on their sleepy town. Wicks paces the story perfectly by maintaining an affable conversational tone while allowing dread to creep in as the people of the town grapple with the possibility of the supernatural and their own moral failings. Though he doesn't differentiate character voices, Wicks gives the listener a good sense of who is speaking. N.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine
