Black Heart on the Appalachian Trail
Death. Be careful where you go looking for answers. Taz Chavis, protagonist of T.J. Forrester’s novel, Black Heart on the Appalachian Trail, chooses to walk away from his unhappy life and decides to walk the Appalachian Trail to look for answers. Instead of answers, he finds other unhappy people. Forrester writes tightly structured prose that can be a real pleasure to savor. He riffs on life and death through a vivid setting and a cast of well-drawn troubled characters. Readers who appreciate good prose and dark subject matter are those most likely to enjoy this novel. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Black Heart on the Appalachian Trail from amazon.com.
