Nightwoods by Charles Frazier

This is the third book by Charles Frazier that I've read, and I can say that I would read any book by him.  Each book is a completely different story, and all are really well written.  This one is set in the early 1960's in small town North Carolina.  Luce is a young woman living all alone in an old lodge as a sort of caretaker when she inherits her murdered sister's troubled twins.  The coming of the children changes everything.  I rate it 5 out of 5.  (I finished this on May 1, so I'm STILL behind in my reviews!)

Thanks for alerting me to this book. I am a bit more than half way through it and enjoying it so much! I agree with your giving it 5 stars. To repay you for all your great suggestions, I recommend "Ordinary Grace" by William Kent Krueger if you haven't already read it.
