Synopsis:  Christy Stillwell's THE WOLF TONE won the Elixir Press 2017 Fiction Award. This novel, set in a Montana college town, takes us on a journey through such issues as motherhood and freedom, accompanied by a buoyant soundtrack like no other. Debra Spark had this to say about it: "For me, Christy Stillwell's novel THE WOLF TONE was like a wonderful vacation to a beautiful, arty Montana town, where I got to live for a season among musicians, art patrons, locals, and owls. I met a tough-minded single mother, a solitary classical musician, and a vet with a start-up medical marijuana dispensary. By the time my stay was over, I'd heard the unexpected and profound story of these unlikely literary bedfellows, a resonant tale about the choices we make, the secrets we keep, and our (often misguided) expectations regarding love, children, and career. No Airbnb booking required." 

About the Author: Christy Stillwell holds a BA in English from the University of Georgia, an MA in Literature from the University of Wyoming,and an MFA from the Warren Wilson College Program forWriters. She is the author of Amnesia, a chapbook of poetry from Finishing Line Press. Her work has appeared in journals such as The Massachusetts Review, The Tishman Review, and Fourth Genre.

My Review: I think that I just wasn't the right person for this book. Over the course of reading this year I have been doing a lot of middle grade and new adult titles. This one is for that book club full of little old ladies that want cozy mystries and cookie cutter stories.  Although the story was ok it just wasn't for me. If you are looking for something this summer to read to just pass the time I would check this one out.
