[EAN: 9780307269867], Neubuch, [PU: Alfred A. Knopf], Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "This stunning debut novel is a triumph of voice and setting. Following one family from the Depression up through the present, the story is . . . set in a remote region called Bloodroot Mountain, so named for the rare flower that grows there, which can both poison and heal. The family's struggles with poverty and human cruelty and their search for connection are set against the majestic Appalachian landscape, which is evoked in the simplest and most beautiful language. At the center of this dramatic story is Myra Lamb . . . born with sky-blue eyes and a talent for connecting with animals and people. Allowed to run free on the family's mountaintop, Myra is a charismatic figure who eventually draws the romantic interest of John Odom, the wealthy son of business owners in town. Their marriage, which starts out with so much promise, gradually turns abusive . . . The long repercussions of their violent relationship, on both Myra's children and Myra's own sanity, are played out through the decades as each family member speaks to the lasting effects of John Odom's hot temper. With a style as elegant as southern novelist Lee Smith's and a story as affecting asThe Color Purple,this debut offers stirring testimony to the resilience of the human spirit." -Joanne Wilkinson,Booklist(starred) "Bloodrootis a literary page-turner filled with characters-and a place-so real that they threaten to burst from the seams of the book and take over. I am haunted by Myra and her children, by the longing and grace of this book's language. But most of all I am haunted by the beauty of this lovely debut novel, a beauty as rare and hard to find as the elusive white-flowered plant for which it is named.Bloodrootis the best Appalachian novel to come out of the region in a long, long while, ushering in a fresh new voice that speaks for a whole generation." -Silas House, author ofClay's QuiltandA Parchment of Leaves "It's spooky whatBloodrootdid to me: it caused me to have a vision of Amy Greene typing at supernaturally speedy speed, thousands of beautiful novels just like this one purring out and away from her fingers. And there I am, in a rocker by a sunny window, forevermore reading them. That would heaven to me. The sound of her book's voices ring perfect." -Carolyn Chute, author ofThe Beans of Egypt, Maine "Bloodrootis a marvel of a first novel, its world deftly conjured, with a mood and magic all its own. I don't know what captivated me more, the vividness of its voices or its evocation of a corner of the American landscape both foreign and familiar-but I was riveted from start to finish." -Arthur Golden, author ofMemoirs of a Geisha "Amy Greene'sBloodrootcan stand proudly beside Alice Walker'sThe Color Purpleand Jeannette Walls'sThe Glass Castle, two works which likewise examine the isometric push of the human spirit against the immovable forces of tyranny and poverty. Greene's novel has everything I savor in fiction: flawed but sympathetic characters, a narrative as unpredictable as it is engaging, and a setting rendered with such a vivid palette of local color detail that you'd swear you were there." -Wally Lamb, author ofThe Hour I First Believed "Brilliant . . . A tapestry of voices and lives so rich and intricate that each and every storyline holds the reader spellbound. It is a story of generations and the place that gave them birth, a story of love and loss, and sacrifice and forgiveness. The voices ring as true and intimate as any I have ever heard. Hats off to Amy Greene, an immensely talented writer." -Jill McCorkle, author of Going Away Shoes "Amy Greene is a born storyteller who depicts the voices and folkways of Appalach

Amazon Best Books of the Month, January 2010: Bloodroot is that rare sort of family saga that feels intimate instead of epic. Set in Tennessee's Smoky Mountains, it's told largely in tandem voices that keep watchful eyes on Myra Lamb. She is a child of the mountain, tied to the land in ways that mystify and enchant those around her. There's magic to Myra--perhaps because she has the remarkable blue eyes foretold by a nearly-forgotten family curse--but little fantasy to her life. Bloodroot is as much about the Lambs as it is about a place, one that becomes ever more vivid as generations form, break free, and knit back together. Its characters speak plainly but true, they are resilient and flawed and beautiful, and there's a near-instant empathy in reading their stories, which--even in their most visceral moments--are alluring and wonderful. --Anne Bartholomew A Q & A with Amy Greene Question: You've lived all your life in East Tennessee's Smoky Mountains, a part of the country you depict vividly in Bloodroot. How did you imbue a familiar place with such detail and even magic? What was it like to put the language you'd heard all your life into words on the page, as dialogue?
