She Walks These Hills by Sharyn McCrumb

This is one of the first of the Ballad novels that I read by Mrs. McCrumb and it still my favorite.  All stories to not have happy endings and sometimes things fall apart, but that is the way of life.

An escaped convict, a graduate student searching for answers to this dissertation on Katie Wilder, a lady that sees more than most, a new deputy, relationships, new, broken, and found again, the threads are all interwoven and connected well.

I really love the excerpts from the Tennessee Methodist Hymnal which fit each chapter so very well.

The best part of any Ballad novel is they stand alone but in many some of the same characters appear so it is like meeting old friends.
