Plot. This is the story of Coot, the son of a hell-fire-and-brimstone abusive preacher, and Marigold, a woman with mysterious healing powers, and the religious tent revivals of the south. Personally, I did not enjoy it – I found the whole thing depressing.
Liked. It is an interesting picture of the hypnotic power of the evangelical preacher and somehow explains some of the blind fever they can evoke from the poor and ignorant.
Not so hot? The author breaks into the middle of the story, more than once, with a sales pitch for other works. What? All this did was convince this listener to NEVER listen to another book by this author or publisher again. Ever. What the … expletive deleted … audiobooks are BOOKS … there are no ads!
Written and narrated by Sean Dietrich, 10 hours of listening in unabridged audiobook format, released in July 2019 by Thomas Nelson (religious publications),
For the first time in my 1000s of audiobook reviews, I can clearly state: NOT recommended.
