The Cove by Ron Rash. As a fan of Southern Gothic literature I had high hopes for this book, but I found this novel hard to get into & to read through. While the prose was of a good quality, the characters didn't really encourage the reader to be emotionally connected to the story. I had to stop & re-start a number of times as I found the plot was dragging, it didn't grab me. That said, it shouldn't detract from the fact this is a good book by a skilful writer, it just wasn't really for me.
