Tor Books 11/26/2013. New paperback. Store pick, recommended by Jill: When Bronwyn Hyatt, a Tufa from the mountains of East Tennessee, returns home as a 20-year-old war hero she must face the legacy of her rebellious past and come to terms with her future. I loved this edgy but lyrical story with its touches of fantasy (Tufa may be a corruption of Tuatha Dé Danann) and its strong-willed, foul-mouthed heroine. Recommended for hip readers of Charles de Lint and/or Sarah Addison Allen. -Jill Hendrix, owner

Publisher Description

Named one of the Best Fiction Books of 2011 by "Kirkus Reviews, The Hum and the Shiver" by Alex Bledsoe is an enchanting tale of music and magic older than the hills. . . .
No one knows where the Tufa came from, or how they ended up in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. Enigmatic and suspicious of outsiders, the Tufa live quiet lives in the hills and valleys of Cloud County. While their origins may be a mystery, there are hints of their true nature buried in the songs they have passed down for generations.
Bronwyn Hyatt, a pure-blood Tufa, has always insisting on doing things her own way, regardless of the consequences. Even though Tufa rarely leave Cloud County, she enlisted in the Army to escape the pressures of Tufa life--her family, her obligations as a First Daughter, and her dangerous ex-boyfriend. But after barely surviving a devastating ambush that killed most of her fellow soldiers, Private Hyatt returns to Cloud County wounded in body and in spirit. But danger lurks in the mountains and hollows of her childhood home. Cryptic omens warn of impending tragedy, and a restless "haint" lurks nearby, waiting to reveal Bronwyn's darkest secrets. Worst of all, Bronwyn has lost touch with the music that was once a vital part of her identity.
Now Bronwyn finds the greatest battle to be right here at home, where her obligations struggle with her need for freedom, and if she makes the wrong choice, the consequences could be deadly for all the Tufa. . . .
"Imagine a book somewhere between "American Gods" and Faulkner. In brief: a good book. Absolutely worth your time."--Patrick Rothfuss, "New York Times" bestselling author, on "The Hum and the Shiver"
"A sheer delight."--"Kirkus Reviews, " starred review
