In the Heart of the Dark Wood by Billy Coffey

Billy Coffey's words intimately dance across the pages. He weaves a tale. One of good and evil facing off. Everything is in perfect measure. He allows the reader to dream along in a delightful and mystique way. He is a writer who gives great detail and allows the reader the illusion that they too are in the pages. 

This story captured my heart from the beginning and my passion to read it only intensified as I turned the pages. Which when reading a Billy Coffey novel although one wants to turn the pages quickly, you don't. You take your time and enjoy not only the story, but the writer as well. He makes you appreciate the gift of the pen. 

This novel takes place in Mattingly once again. Virginia grows on you and Coffey makes you want to visit if not just for the sheer beauty of allowing the heart to be moved by the beauty of the dark woods. 

Coffey intricately brings faith to light throughout these pages and gives the reader great life lessons. Always love a novel with a great take a way. This is the third novel that takes place in Mattingly. Although you can read them in order, I would suggest beginning with, When Mockingbirds Sing. It will give you a greater understanding of Mattingly. You will no doubt fall in love with these characters. You might even find yourself within these pages. 

This novel was a gift from Thomas Nelson for sharing my review with you. 

Billy Coffey's critically acclaimed books combine rural Southern charm with a vision far beyond the ordinary. He is a regular contributor to several publications, where he writes about faith and life. Billy lives with his wife and two children in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains.
