An Indictment of Appalachian Stereotyping
When a pretty young schoolteacher is charged with murder in 1930's Appalachia, the national press use it as an excuse to sell papers — and to demonize the region, raising social issues that go well beyond the fate of one defendant.
Appalachian wise woman Nora Bonesteel is 12-years old, just beginning to come to terms with her gift of the Sight.
"WOW! Sharyn McCrumb is not just a writer — in fact, she's a conjurer, a genius, a wordsmith, an entertainer, a wit, a scholar, a wise woman, and a storyteller of the first rank. The Devil Amongst The Lawyers is flat-out brilliant and transcendent, a book that gets everything exactly right. Simply put, novels don't come any better than this." - Martin Clark, author of "The Legal Limit" and "The Many Aspects Of Mobile Home Living"
"The Devil Amongst the Lawyers is a superb novel that, once started, is so well written and so expertly researched that readers will find it impossible to put down. It is also a scathing indictment of how Appalachia has been, and continues to be, stereotyped by a supposedly objective media. Bravo!" - Ron Rash, author of Saints at the River and Serena
