Ron Rash to be featured on ‘North Carolina Bookwatch’

Written by 

Ron Rash and his latest novel The Cove will be featured in the season premiere of “North Carolina Bookwatch” on UNC-TV.

The program, hosted by D.G. Martin, will be broadcast at 9:30 p.m. July 6 with a repeat showing at 5 p.m. July 8.

Released in April, The Cove is set in Western North Carolina during World War I and tells the story of a mountain woman, Laurel Shelton, who lives in an isolated cove with her brother Hank, a war veteran recently returned from France. One day, Laurel finds a stranger, Walter, who has been nearly stung to death by yellow jackets, and she nurses him back to health as she falls in love. But, a local Army recruiter who is rabidly anti-German suspects Walter is not the person he claims to be and threatens to ruin the couple’s hopes for the future.

The Cove was collecting favorable reviews even before its release. It was recently listed as one of Amazon’s “Best Books of the Year So Far,” and it was named in a Publishers Weekly roundup of the “Best Summer Books 2012.”

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
