I don't usually read fantasy, but this novella, The Wood Witch by Pepper Sparks, is set in the area
where I went hiking last week, so I'm going to give it a try.
Here's the intro:
On a humid summer day in the Appalachian Mountains, Sadie Brown sat in a red booth at Finnegan's Diner with her son, Nicholas, sipping coffee and eating a piece of tart rhubarb pie. She watched the dark shadows boil in Red-Hawk pass, a growing plume threatening to consume the hollers and rifts around them. Sadie, a long-time resident of Richmond County, was the only person to see the rolling mass advancing upon Summerset, and a burnt odor permeated the sleepy town along a lonely mountain road name Black Lick.I found this on Amazon for $2.99. I'm looking forward to reading it.
