Summer Reading - Take a Book Vacation

By
Home Stager

I just finished reading Serpent Box by Vincent Carrella. If you are looking for something completely different to read this summer look no further.

Here's my Amazon Review:

Reading Vincent Carrella's book is like taking your soul on a mystical backwoods Appalachian retreat. The "Holiness" people have a religious schema that includes drinking poison and handling deadly snakes. It is hard to imagine a life where religion permeates all aspects of life. Carrella paints a picture of rural life where the magic can be found in everyday things and faith is part of everything. The characters are vivid and enlivened with a lyrical voice that leaves you thinking about them throughout the day. In the end I didn't know whether to feel sorry for them or envy their pure faith.

The story and the writing are filled with grace, power, and beauty.

Serpent Box on Amazon.

Go out and get the book!!!


I'd love to hear what you guys are reading. I'm always looking...

Maureen,

Nice review.  I guess I'll have to pick it up.  You look like my cousin...who grew up in Orangeburg!

I just found some Elizabeth Alder books at the library - great, easy reads.  With all we do with real estate, I needed something a little mindless!
