read The Devil's Footprints

G sons a terrible chain of events begins Michael's infatuation with Moira's teenage daughter takes him on a journey towards a defined fate where he is forced to face his present and then finally his past. Final Rating 355 I used to believe the dead travelled away out to some great distance as they decayed over weeks or months or yearsI though the dead went back to nothing breaking down slowly like fallen leavesI was a bit disappointed with this I first fell in love with Burnside s writing when I read The Dumb House This book is written just as elouently but the story fell a little short for me There was too much emphasis on his childhood and not much on the story with Hazel While the back story was really interesting it dragged a little too much The story between Michael and Hazel strongly resembled Lolita Burnside makes a few references to Lolita that made me smile and I appreciated that he pointed out his own similarities from that Burnside does a great job at depicting the small town of Coldhaven The devil s footprints is a local town myth within Coldhaven and I enjoyed how the sentiments of that story were echoed within Michael s story Burnside is a great writer and this book is definitely worth reading it just wasn t one of my favourites The Big Golden Book of Poetry read The Dumb House This book is written just as elouently but the story fell a little short for me There was too much emphasis on his childhood and not much on the story with Hazel While the back story was Wild Man Creek (Virgin River, resembled Lolita Burnside makes a few Homewrecker reading it just wasn t one of my favourites
