The Hum and The Shiver Giveaway




ABOUT THE BOOK:

The Hum and The Shiver is set in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, where the author himself was raised. The Hum and the Shiver spins a fascinating tale, combining mythology with American folklore in the dark valleys and hollows of the Smoky Mountains—where songs live…and kill.

When the first Europeans came to the Smoky Mountains, the Tufa were already there, quietly living in the hills and valleys of Cloud County, their origins lost to history. But there are clues hidden in the songs they have passed down for generations. The Hum and The Shiver tells the tale of Private Bronwyn Hyatt, a true Tufa and soldier returning home from war. The book follows her struggles to join in the song of her people and let it lift her onto the night winds and soar beyond her haunted homeland.

This book does sound good. I think that growing up means we do have to find new ways to fit into the music of our past. Thanks for the giveaway.
