    Interview with Ann Hite, Award Winning Author of Three Novels and a Novella

    in Books

    Please join us! Joy Radio will be interviewing award winning author Ann Hite on January 8, 11 AM, ET, to discuss her newest novel, Where The Souls Go.


    At the age of ten, Annie Todd finds not only is her mother quite mad but that Annie has inherited an unusual legacy. The ghost of a young girl visits Annie in her new home deep in the mountains of Western North Carolina, where Annie’s mother, Grace Jean, has hidden them away from the life they used to know. Annie finds an unlikely ally in Pearl, a young woman who keeps house in Annie’s new home. The secrets that surround Pearl take Annie’s mind off her loneliness and soon her family history is revealed to her.  This book follows three generations of the Pritchard family, not only telling the story of how Hobbs Pritchard became the villain of Black Mountain, but highlighting women’s struggles in Appalachia, beginning in the Depression Era and ending in the mid-sixties.


    Ann Hite is the award winning author of three novels and a novella. Her latest book, Where The Souls Go, was published by Mercer University Press in September 2015. Her debut novel, Ghost On Black Mountain, became a Townsend Prize Finalist and won Georgia Author of the Year in 2012. Ann is a confessed book junkie who lives in Marietta, Georgia.
