A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash


"They will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover." Mark 16:18. Jess and Christopher Hall (Stump) are brothers in a backwoods North Carolina town. Stump is the first-born, born in the midst of a blizzard that made travel more than difficult given the dirt and gravel roads. Midwife Adelaide Lyle was the one who delivered him, steeped in the traditions and cures of old time folk belief. Stump doesn't speak. But there are secrets that these two brothers share. And there is knowledge of the church and its pastor that Adelaide keeps to herself. But there is a high cost for these secrets. A cost that will change the lives of these townsfolk forever.
