THE ROSEWOOD CASKET by Sharyn McCrumb, 1997. This is NOT a your typical mystery which is why it peaked my interest. This is the story of Randall Stargill who lays dying on his Appalachian farm. Meanwhile his children are gathering for his demise and the funeral afterwards. A local real estate agent hovers in the background, ready to make an offer for the farm. Nora Bonesteel a mountain wise-woman with the second sight, who was Randall’s sweetheart in days gone by informs his sons that a small box containing human bones needs to be buried with Randall. Sounds rather interesting doesn’t it? A book of Dark secrets, family strife, and eerie legends.
