Publisher Description

The Hum and the Shiver by Alex Bledsoe is an enchanting tale of music and magic older than the hills, and the first book in the wondrous Tufa series. . . .

"Imagine a book somewhere between American Gods and Faulkner. In brief: a good book. Absolutely worth your time."—Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author, on The Hum and the Shiver

Private Bronwyn Hyatt had left her small town of Needsville for the army to escape the pressures of her mystical Tufa family legacy. She returns a lone survivor after a disastrous attack overseas, wounded in body and spirit.

But cryptic omens warn of impending tragedy, and a restless haint lurks nearby, waiting to reveal Bronwyn's darkest secrets. Now Bronwyn finds the greatest battle lies right in her backyard, especially as young minister with too much curiosity arrives in town. If she makes the wrong choice, the consequences could be deadly for all the Tufa. . . .

Nice read

Strong characters and an interesting story line. I recommend for light reading. My only disappointment was the lack of depth and richness in the "songs". Maybe a collaboration with a poet would make the songs what they should be.

A true masterpiece

This book really touched my heart. Ever so often, a book will touch the soul. This one was like that. It was a rare treasure to find. I’m not sure if it’s because of being set in the Appalachian mountains and I live there or it’s mysterious qualities and folklore. Whatever it was, I could feel it in my bones. The natural beauty of the mountains here and the unexplainable sense I have always felt from nature and being outdoors in the summer have always been something I could just feel. The author brings this alive in his words. He is so amazing in his gift of being able to capture that. I’m so happy he chose to share that with the rest of the world. This is a true masterpiece. And if you read this book and can’t feel the hum or can’t relate and it seems boring, then I guess that means you’re not a Tufa lol.
