As someone not from around here — the real River Town, WV — I can appreciate scenery. It is just real enough to create the emotional attached in the reader, but yet serves as the authors’ creation. Even the time period has that odd mix of fantasy and reality. It is that moment right before West Virginia changed to the coal madam she is today.
A fantastic read!
Overall a job well done.
Eric Douglas and his gang of authors share that burden to great effect. Every story has a unique feel that collectively weaves a tapestry of richness that carries the reader along with them.
Read River Town, hear it, see it and occasionally smell it.
But no matter what, you cannot help but feel it.
