“Eloquent, lyrical, and richly textured . . . There is no one quite like [McCrumb] among present-day writers. No one better either.” —San Diego Union-Tribune

With a career spanning decades, and superlatives from reviewers nationwide--whose bestselling novels have been named Notable Books by the New York Times and the LA Times--this is a unique opportunity to publish one of Sharyn McCrumb's most cherished novels. Now in trade paperback for the first time, fresh on the heels of McCrumb's return to the bestseller list!

The stage is set for family drama when Randall Stargill lies dying on his southern Appalachian farm, and his four sons come home to build him a coffin made from the special cache of rosewood he has saved for this purpose.  Meanwhile, mountain wisewoman, Nora Bonesteel, prepares another box—to be buried with him.  Among them, a real estate developer is hovering over the family's farm bringing secrets and tensions to the surface.

In a style both lyrical and beautifully detailed, with a narrative that flows from Native American lore and the burnished tales of Daniel Boone—up to the sharpest, and keenly realized landscapes of Appalachia today, The Rosewood Casket is a novel as hauntingly beautiful as the mountains that gave it charge--and a stunning addition to our collection of McCrumb Ballad novels.
