Deborah Healabout this book: All my novels have bits and pieces of me in them. I cannot imagine how an author could write without leaving any traces of themselves behind. Growing up, I heard the tales about the infamous Cave In Rock, both a cave and a town on the Ohio River at the southern tip of Illinois. How Sweet the Sound is about the cave and the vicious river pirates who made it their base of operations during the 1790s. From there they preyed on the pioneers coming down river on their flatboats in search of land at the western frontier.
The legends of the pirates have been featured in movies ("How the West Was Won"), books, and countless newspaper articles. I grew up hearing the stories because my family is from that part of the state. When I did the research for my book I discovered that some of the legends were false. And others didn't do justice to the actual cruelty and brutality of the pirates.
When my mom first read my finished novel she asked me how I could come up with such a horrible plot. I assured her my brain wasn't turning evil. I only wrote about things that had really happened. One reader gave How Sweet the Sound a low rating and bemoaned the fact that it is different from the other books in the series.
It had to be different because it deals with human depravity and the need for Christ's atoning work. But don't worry, because it has a happy ending too. Amazing Grace: How Sweet the Sound!
