“The place has entered me...it has coloured my life like a stain.”
Adam Nicolson

Most stories are set in a place  Sometimes, the place doesn't matter much, doesn't seem to have much impact on the story being told.  but other times, the place is so big a part of the story, it can seem like another character.  Certainly, it seems some stories can only exist in certain places.

Devil Amongst the Lawyers, by Sharon McCrumb

In 1935, when Erma Morton, a beautiful young woman with a teaching degree, is charged with the murder of her father in a remote Virginia mountain community, the case becomes a cause célèbre for the national press...(J)ournalists descend on the mountain county intent on infusing their stories with quaint local color: horse-drawn buggies, rundown shacks, children in threadbare clothes. ...but a local journalist, Carl Jennings, fresh out of college and covering his first major story, reports what he sees: an ordinary town and a defendant who is probably guilty. 

- From the Publisher's summary

 

Copies of this book are now available at the circulation desk.
