Sweet Music on Moonlight Ridge
By Ramey Channell
Welcome to Moonlight Ridge, a magical, musical place overlooking a small town named Eden. Here you'll meet a pair of intrepid eight-year-old cousins, Lily Claire and Willie T., and their multi-ethnic family in the backwoods of Alabama.This is a story about family and community ties, loyalty and faith, and a very unusual map used by two flamboyant children to solve a mystery "out on the mountain." This is a Southern story filled with humor, mystery, surprises, and a touch of the supernatural, in the 1950s backwoods of Alabama.
Ramey Channell is an author, poet, and artist, who was born in a small Alabama town, grew up in the magical backwoods of 1950s rural Alabama, and began writing poetry and short stories at an early age. Ramey is the youngest of three sisters, and she inherited her love of poetry, literature, and creative writing from her grandmother, mother, and older sisters. She inherited her foolishness and artistic talent from her father.
"I am infinitely grateful for everything I learned from the mountain folk who made up my family and community, and the animals who were our constant companions. I can't stop writing about the surprising magic and mystery of the world I was born into."
