From the back cover: 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.
Crow Hollow is just up the road a ways from Mattingly. When the story begins the town is trying to recuperate from that nights devastation. And then our narrator begins to slowly explain the events that led up to the encounter with Alvaretta Graves. Four teens were trying to have a party, One was emotionally hurt and ran away. When her friends tried to find her they ran into the witch’s cabin and she cursed them. The question is was the curse real and is it the cause of the devastation? And that is the reason for reading this book. All I can tell you is that this is a gripping story that will keep you flipping pages late into the night until you finish it. Mr. Coffey does a superb job of making each character come alive so that we feel what they feel. This is a book that will make you think and I look forward to a return to Mattingly.
