About the book: For the three people tortured by their secret complicity in a young man's untimely death, redemption is what they most long for . . . and the last thing they expect to receive.
It has been twenty years since Philip McBride's body was found along the riverbank in the dark woods known as Happy Hollow. His death was ruled a suicide. But three people have carried the truth ever since---Philip didn't kill himself that day. He was murdered.
Each of the three have wilted in the shadow of their sins. Jake Barnett is Mattingly's sheriff, where he spends his days polishing the fragile shell of the man he pretends to be. His wife, Kate, has convinced herself the good she does for the poor will someday wash the blood from her hands. And high in the mountains, Taylor Hathcock lives in seclusion and fear, fueled by madness and hatred.
Yet what cannot be laid to rest is bound to rise again. Philip McBride has haunted Jake's dreams for weeks, warning that he is coming back for them all. When Taylor finds mysterious footprints leading from the Hollow, he believes his redemption has come. His actions will plunge the quiet town of Mattingly into darkness. These three will be drawn together for a final confrontation between life and death . . . Between truth and lies.

My Thoughts:
I had a hard time following this story. There are so many characters and story lines I couldn't keep up. I read and reviewed Snow Day, and really enjoyed it. I was very sad that I didn't enjoy this one. 
I plan on trying it again.

I am updating this review, because I have re-read the book, and I really enjoyed it. Billy Coffey writes a book about how the past not covered in grace haunts us. Jake, Kate, and Taylor live with guilt over what happened to Phillip twenty years ago. In re-reading it, I was reminded of The Oath by Frank Peretti. Sin and the guilt from sin has a way of eating us from the inside out. That is what is happening with the characters in this book. While the redemption thread is there it is not over powering. You will walk away from this book thinking not only of the characters, but the redemption we have received through Christ.  I highly recommend it!!
