Nightwoods by Charles Frazier

The main lesson Luce had learned was that you couldn’t count on anybody.

In the lonesome beauty of the forest, across the far shore of the mountain lake from town, Luce acts as caretaker to an empty, decaying Lodge, a relic of holidaymakers a century before.  Her days are long and peaceful, her nights filled with Nashville radio and yellow lights shimmering on the black water.  A solitary life, and the perfect escape.

Until the stranger children come.

Bringing fire.  And murder.  And love.

Peer & Press Reviews

This gripping account of a woman under threat in rural Carolina is the finest novel to date from the author of Cold Mountain.

The Sunday Times

Charles Frazier’s third novel is as accomplished as his first two…  In anyone else’s hands, this might turn out to be a gripping but ultimately forgettable thriller.  Frazier, however, is a writer whose spare prose paradoxically oozes atmosphere – you can almost smell the verdant pine trees and hear the crack of the twigs underfoot…  Beneath the chilling, photogenic story, the writing remains beautiful.

Independent

By the book’s climactic scenes in the shadowy mountain forest that gives Nightwoods its title, the unhurried, poetic suspense is both difficult to bear and impossible to shake.
