Publisher's Summary

As the Korean War ends, practical and well-mannered army nurse Corinne Ford returns stateside to live in the Mississippi town of Conroy with her new fiancé, Private First Class Elijah Dunne. She wonders if their love is strong enough to overshadow their differences, but upon her arrival to Elijah's backwoods stomping grounds, she understands that culture shock is the least of her worries.
After four good ol' boys are attacked in the night while seeking to terrorize a local black family, decades of buried secrets begin to rise. From Conroy's most powerful citizen - known as "the Judge" - to the man Corinne intends to marry, no one is innocent. Yet the deepest secret of all involves the beautiful, cruel, and dead Miss Ruby. The former belle of Conroy, and Elijah's lost love, is neither forgotten nor truly gone. But her death is only the beginning of a slow vengeance that won't stop until its hunger is satisfied.

Southern Gothic Horror

I really enjoyed this book. It was a classical horror novel with a modern twist. Imagine Salem's Lot crossed with The Witching Hour as told by Flannery O'Connor.

Very Interesting!!

Would you listen to Shivaree again? Why?

Yes, I enjoyed the whole book....it kept me guessing and wondering what would happen next.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Shivaree?

When the Judge died...


What does Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I liked her voice and how she gave all the characters their own voice and attitude.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Ruby had the Doctor held, awaiting the Judge to wake up saying he would be hungry. whether or not the Doctor killed himself before that happened. I liked him until Ruby told us what he had done to Dillon.


Any additional comments?

I have enjoyed all J. D. Horn's books....
