    The figure in the dark wasn't a ghost, or an ephemeral memory from her past, but a real flesh-and-blood man. And he hadn't come as a friend. He'd come for revenge.

    Emily Carpenter is the queen of lush, atmospheric gothic fiction. She has a way of turning a slow burning mystery into a page turner of epic proportions, which is why she's remained amongst my top auto-buy authors for years. While this book is a follow-up of sorts to the author's debut, Burying the Honeysuckle Girls, I've heard from multiple early reviewers that they found

    Try as I might, I just could not get into this book. From it's abrupt time line changes to its multiple characters, the real story seemed to be lost in a fog. Through the back and forthing, the author tries to introduce Dove Jarrod and her story as being an evangelist con artist. We meet in the other time line, he granddaughter Eve, now the head of Dove's charitable foundation.

    However, after Eve is assaulted by a man intent on getting revenge on the foundation by revealing Dove's possible murder connection and a missing valuable coin the story tries to connect the dots behind a murder in the past, a grandmother's somewhat shady past and the fate of the foundation and its works for charity. Can Dove's reputation be saved by a granddaughter that really doesn't think much of her grandmother or are evil things afoot that will bring the f...

    How do you like the sound of the word “coin?” Coin. Coin. Coin. Coin. Coin. If you’re still with me, it’s a good sign that the hundreds (thousands?) of times it’s used in this novel won’t drive you to drink.

    There’s a missing coin, you see? And our present-day main character needs to find it ASAP or the scam that is her grandmother’s faith-healing legacy and murderous past will be exposed. Flash back (in alternating chapters) to said grandmother’s path to the revival tents by way of a psychiatric hospital and circus.

    If it sounds like there’s a lot going on here, there is. And there are a lot of characters to keep track of too. Some seem to be present if only to tie this book to the author’s previous bestselling southern gothic novel, BURYING THE HONEYSUCKLE GIRLS. Once I discovered this, I felt a bit...

    Emily Carpenter had me at faith healers, and she kept me glued to the pages with this captivating story, effortlessly weaving the past and the present into one haunting tale. RTHS is a return to Carpenter’s Southern Gothic roots...and she does the genre like no other. Lush and atmospheric, with pitch-perfect prose and filled with characters you won’t soon forget. All hail the Southern Gothic queen! 👑

    Thank you to #Netgalley and #LakeUnionPublishing for the chance to read #RevivingtheHawthorneSisters in anticipation of its October 20th release! I give this book 3.5 starts out of 5.

    Wayward evangelist faith healers, asylums, family secrets, outlaws, rare coins, missing corpses, and things hidden in walls? Sign me up! This book was not at all what I expected and I was more than pleasantly surprised. I needed something fairly light to read during a stressful time and this ticked all of the boxes of a light but still well-plotted and engaging read. I found Dove's character and timeline fascinating, and though I did think it was much stronger than the modern timeline juxtaposed to it, I found the multiple perspectives really useful in exploring the complex character and history of Dove.

    My biggest worry with this novel was th...

    A Southern Gothic novel that floats effortlessly between past and present. In the past we follow Dove Jarrod, an evangelist who preys on the faithful to make them believe they’ve been healed. In the present, Eve, Dove’s granddaughter, who learns that beyond Dove’s cons, she may have also been a murderer.

    To protect her family and find the truth, Even sets out on a journey to unravel the truth behind the accusations.

    While this is a stand alone, the story is a follow up to one of Carpenter’s previous novels, Burying the Honeysuckle Girls, blending historical fiction with a sense of magical realism. A deeply entrancing, suspenseful story with gorgeous prose and an evocative setting in the South. This was my first Emily Carpenter book and it won't be my last!

    Thank you to Netgalley for a copy of this book in ...

    Thanks to Net galley for this book. This is the first book I have read of this author. This book got my interest from the first page and kept my interest to the last. I really enjoyed this book and Im looking forward to reading more.

    I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    So here it goes: I did not enjoy this book and had a difficult time finishing it.
    The longer version is I wanted to like this book. It's about a granddaughter connecting to her grandmother by exploring her story, it's women overcoming terrible odds and building a life for themselves. However, there's hardly any character you can honestly root for and a complete lack of a moral compass borderline in cynicism.

    The story of the book, told in two time lines can be separated between Ruth, the grandmother, who became a healing evangelist pastor during the Great Depression in Alabama, later becoming Dove, having a huge following and leaving a Foundation behind that is run by Eve, the granddaughter. In the present time line Eve is absolutely sure, because he...

    As usual, this book is perfection. One of the most descriptive books yet. She paints beautiful sceneries and torrid tales. I have yet to read a even semi ok book by Emily Carpenter. Every thing she writes is gorgeous. This will not disappoint. I’d read Burying the Honeysuckle girls first. Thanks for another great read Emily! Looking forward to the next.

    Double lives. A dangerous predator lurks. The truth shall set you free. Run Eve, Run!
    Dove seems like a great healer and devoted human. We learn from Eve (grandaughter) that she's also a con and Eve has felt compelled to keep her secrets hidden.
    Now, Eve is on the receiving end of her grandmother's worst secret-MURDER and is assaulted in the process.
    This is a hair tingling novel that really compels readers to follow along and not jump to conclusions as the experience escalates to dangerous heights.
    The Flowing Hair dollar was a central focus especially during times of economic uncertainty such as they were in the early to late 30's as seen in this new work.
    Following the money trail, the connection to the coin, the elaborate location of the coin was quite a treat for readers. History is important but would the accusation...
