What's that sound?

Alex Bledsoe has written another book about the Tufa, a mysterious ancient race of people that live in isolated ridges and hollows of the Smoky Mountains. Wisp of a Thing is set in the same sometimes sinister landscape of Appalachia as was The Hum and the Shiver. The story starts out as a grieving musician finds his way to Cloud County, Tennessee in pursuit of a song that will ease his broken heart. His girlfriend has died tragically in a plane crash and a mysterious figure appeared to him and told him the story about the song. Rob finds both music and mystery in the mountains. Close-lipped locals guard their secrets, even as Rob gets caught up in a subtle power struggle he can't begin to comprehend. A vacationing wife goes missing, raising suspicions of foul play, and a strange feral girl runs wild in the woods, howling in the night like a lost spirit.Change is coming to Cloud County, and only the night wind knows what part Rob will play when the last leaf falls from the Widow's Tree. For readers who like a little magic with their stories!
