In a North Carolina mountain town filled with moonshine and rotten husbands, Sadie Blue is only the latest girl to face a dead-end future at the mercy of a dangerous drunk. She's been married to Roy Tupkin for 15 days, and she knows now that she should have listened to the folks who said he was trouble. But when a stranger sweeps in and knocks the world off-kilter for everyone in town, Sadie begins to think there might be more to life than being Roy's wife.
As stark and magnificent as Appalachia itself, If the Creek Don't Rise is a bold and beautifully layered debut about a dusty, desperate town finding the inner strength it needs to outrun its demons. The folks of Baines Creek will take you deep into the mountains with heart, honesty, and homegrown grit.

I liked the story line, but really loved the spoken word. Each persons personality came through so clear with the inflection and drawl of their voice. From Sadie to Billy to Kate to Birdy....all wonderfully performed!

Captivating story, extremely well written
Mesmerizing story, drew me in and held me throughout the entire book, from beginning to end. The female narrator was superb, she actually enhanced the story with a nuanced and highly skilled performance. I’m very picky and was surprised at how much I enjoyed the writing and narration.
