Gerald Costlow/Deal with the Devil
978-1476033082

1920s in the Appalachian Mountains, Chad Morgan and Jeb Smith make a deal with the devil or Mr. Scratch as he likes to go by. Riches for moonshine—so easy. However, fail to deliver and whatever the two cherish the most will be forfeited.

The two soon realize the deal wasn’t so sweet. Their children, Seth and Jolene are in love. When the deal goes sour, the sweethearts may be the ones to suffer the consequences.

Costlow’s ‘Deal with the Devil’ is a quick read, but rich in detail and with witty characters you are sure to remember long after you’ve read the story. Jolene and Seth’s romance is sweet and their hopes and dreams become apparent with each stolen kiss.

This story of past debts, broken deals and forbidden love is a must read. Costlow delivers a delightful ‘good versus evil’ tale you won’t want to miss.
