I always feel a bit ridiculous touting my own work, so I’ll let others do it. Here are just a few things other authors and readers have said about Keowee Valley:
“A glorious debut from a gifted author.” ~ Adriana Trigiani, bestselling author of Tony’s Wife, The Shoemaker’s Wife, Big Stone Gap
“Keowee Valley is a terrific first novel by Katherine Scott Crawford–a name that should be remembered. She has a lovely prose style, a great sense of both humor and history, and she tells about a time in South Carolina that I never even imagined.” ~ Pat Conroy, bestselling author of The Prince of Tides and South of Broad.
“Katherine Scott Crawford has merged history and drama in this compelling story of one woman’s boldness and courage. Crawford is a fresh and valuable new voice in Southern Literature.” ~ Ron Rash, bestselling author of Serena and Saints at the River
“Keowee Valley is a wonderful story, and Katherine Scott Crawford is a powerful witness to the lost world of the Southern frontier when much of it was Cherokee land. Her understanding of the complex history of the times and her obvious love (and intimiate knowledge of) the landscape make this book a treasure….” ~ Philip Lee Williams, author of A Distant Flame, winner of the Michael Shaara prize for Civil War fiction
“I grew up going to Sunday ride through the very terrain of Keowee Valley. Little did I know that such poignant and dramatic history lay buried centuries deep in the landscape that our ’63 Chevrolet traversed, and little did I imagine that one day a sensual, evocative and compelling writer like Katherine Scott Crawford was going to come along and render that history into a gripping, magically embodied novel that would stay with me long after I had put it down.” ~ Tommy Hays, author of The Pleasure was Mine
“In Quincy MacFadden, Crawford creates a feisty, gutsy heroine who survives those fraught years before the American Revolution in Appalachian Indian country, finding love even as she defines the spirit that will create a nation. The frontier equivalent to Abigail Adams in Boston or Dolley Madison in Philadelphia. I read it one eager, page-turning sitting.” ~ Beverly Swerling, bestselling author of City of Promise and Shadowbrook
“As I read Keowee Valley I sunk into its stunning vistas, cool mountain streams, and spit-roasted wild game. Crawford’s vivid characters and striking scenery leaped off the pages; gunpowder stung my nose, raindrops splashed across my face and the crispness of the mountain air revived me.” ~ John Malik, chef, book reviewer and writer for the Huffington Post
Dear readers, I hope you’ll take a chance on my debut historical novel. It was a story I’d been growing in my imagination since I was a child, and a love letter to the land in which I was lucky enough to grow up. To order Keowee Valley for only 99 cents, go to Amazon.com.
