Parchment of Leaves & Clay's Quilt - Silas House

Both completed in September 2006. I enjoyed these books because they gave me insight into the people where I live. The stories take place in central Kentucky. Parchment of Leaves is first chronologically, followed by The Coal Tattoo, and then Clay's Quilt. I discussed these as part of a book group. It was interesting to hear their perspectives as most of them are from this area, while I am originally from Colorado. Anyone from Kentucky or with roots in Kentucky should read these books. I plan on reading The Coal Tattoo this year or next.

Clay's Quilt 2001, 292 pp.
Parchment of Leaves 2002, 278 pp.

Rating: 3.5/5 for both
