"This novel will pass the test of time and be considered a classic in the years to come" (Harriet Klausner) - Now in trade paperback for the first timeThe Ballad of Frankie Silver is considered one of McCrumb's classics in her Ballad Novel series and comes right on the heels of her New York Times bestseller, The Ballad of Tom Dooley. Set in the Appalachian wilderness blending legends and folklore with high suspense, this stellar novel is considered one of her crowning achievements.In 1833 Frankie Silver was an 18-year-old girl convicted of murder in Burke County, North Carolina. Through a detailed investigation the local sheriff, and soon all the townsfolk, discover reason to question her guilt - but the wheels of justice were mercilessly unstoppable and she was hanged. Now, more than a century later, another woman is convicted of murder in the lush hills of Tennessee. Her life is now in the hands of Spencer Arrowood, a man who begins to discover that the convictions of these two women have deep and haunting parallels. In a voice that could only be Sharyn McCrumb's, the worlds of these two stories intersect - and characters, generations and history are breathlessly painted against this Appalachian canvas.

Sharyn McCrumb was born in Wilmington, North Carolina on February 26, 1948. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and received an M.A. in English from Virginia Tech. Her novels include the Elizabeth MacPherson series and the Ballad series. St. Dale won a 2006 Library of Virginia Award and the Appalachian Writers Association Book of the Year Award. Ghost Riders won the Wilma Dykeman Award for Literature and the Audie Award for Best Recorded Book. She has received numerous awards for her work including the Sherwood Anderson Short Story Award, the Perry F. Kendig Award for Achievement in Literary Arts, the Chaffin Award for Southern Literature, and the Plattner Award for Short Story. In 2014, she received the Mary Frances Hobson Prize for Southern Literature by North Carolina's Chowan University.
