Olivia Harker Cross owns a strip of mountain in Pope County, Kentucky, a land where whites and blacks eke out a living in separate, tattered kingdoms and where silver-faced wolves howl in the night. But someone is killing the wolves of Big Foley Mountain - and Olivia is beginning to realize how much of her own bitter history she's never understood: Her mother's madness, building toward a fiery crescendo. Her daughter's flight to California, leaving her to raise Will'm, her beloved grandson. And most of all, her town's fear, for Olivia has real and dangerous enemies. Now this proud, lonely woman will face her mother and daughter, her neighbors and the wolf hunters of Big Foley Mountain. Her determination to find out who is killing wolves on her Kentucky property in 1938 unwittingly brings danger to her impoverished community as well as her grandson Will'm.

This story was certainly about an important struggle in history, however the story did not move along well. Difficult to slough through.

I enjoyed the character, Olivia, quite a lot. Actually all of the characters and their interactions. I enjoyed the 'fight' Olivia was having regarding the wolves as well, and could relate to her cause to some extent.The writing was 'ok', I could visualize the scenes through the descriptions quite well. Interesting overall.
