Charles Frazier

On Thanksgiving morning I listened to the audio book of Nightwoods while stuffing the turkey and baking pumpkin pie. I was grateful to have the time to listen to this suspenseful story of a loner who ends up caretaker for her murdered sister’s traumatized twins. Narrator Will Patton expertly gives voice to Charles Frazier’s novel, with hushed quieter tones when speaking for the heroine, Luce, and bringing a hard-edged disgust and cruelty to his voice when portraying, Bud, the smooth-talking villain.  Anyone who enjoyed Frazier’s debut novel, Cold Mountain, is sure to like his third which is also set in the mountains of North Carolina.  Check our catalog for the audio book or the print copy
