The Witch's Grave by PHillip Depoy

Book description: Folklorist and academic Fever Devilin, a native of the Georgia Appalachians, is drawn into a strange mystery that has its roots deep in the hills of Blue Mountain. After a spat during a church supper, Able Carter and his fiancée, Truevine Deveroe, are missing. A bit later, a body is found in the ravine behind Fever's cabin and identified as the local mortician, Harding Pinehurst. Folks suspect Able Carter of the deed. A few -- like Truevine's drunken, gun-toting brothers -- are out for blood. Soon, however, the grisly discovery of countless bodies half buried near the mortuary expose the murdered man's horrifying secret -- but not who killed him. Fever's insight into his own dark past, along with his understanding of the peculiar ways of the mountain people, will lead him to the unlikely killer in a world where old legends told through generations are still a way of life -- and now, it seems, death.

 

ETA: Because of a lot of issues here at home (hubby was layed off after his company moved us here in December  and my daughter was diagnosed with a brain cyst, so lot of dr appts coming up), I may not participate in reading this book. I will find questions and begin posting them on March 15. If anyone can think of questions as they read, feel free to post. - Kat

I have already read this book so maybe I'll have a chance to chime in on the questions. I hope things work out for you and your DH. I was laid off two years ago and I've been back at school getting a teaching license. I have some small idea of what you are going through. Best wishes to you.

Sorry everyone I kinda fell off the face of the earth this month. We are in the middle of getting ready to move again and have been taking a lot of road trips.

Did anyone read the book? I will look for some questions to post.
