9780812516043: Slow Funeral

Bracken County, nestled in the Blue Ridge region of the American South, is like no other place on Earth. Behind its facade of small-town southern life, magic works and corrupts all it touches. Maude Fuller has been running from her witch destiny for a long time. Now Maude's grandmother is dying and she must go home--and she'll try anything to save granny's soul.

From Publishers Weekly:

Ore ( The Illegal Rebirth of Billy the Kid ) turns from SF to contemporary fantasy in this rambling novel about witchcraft in the hills of western Virginia. Maude Fuller is a child of Bracken County witches who's been avoiding her spooky kin by living on welfare in California, but when she feels the mental call of her dying grandmother Partridge, she reluctantly heads East to tend the old woman. Following Maude--and complicating her eventual showdown with her magic-wielding relatives--are Doug Sanderheim, an engineer Maude picked up in a bar, and the Reverend Julian Springer, a maniacal preacher. Maude must protect Partridge from her creepy Aunt Betty, who has dire plans for the dying woman's soul, and must stop her Uncle Luke from using Doug as a human sacrifice. Along with several eerie moments, Ore offers a colorful depiction of Appalachian life and culture. But the novel lacks focus and momentum; in fact, so little happens in the first half that readers may well lose interest before the central conflict becomes apparent.

From Library Journal:

Despite her best intentions, Maude Fuller returns from her haven in California to her family home in Bracken County, Virginia. There she grudgingly accepts the heritage of her witch blood to fight a battle against the forces of evil in a land riddled with ancient magic. The author of Becoming Alien (Tor Bks., 1989) offers a dark and foreboding look at rural magic, depicted here as universally petty and vindictive. Although Ore is a graceful writer who captures many aspects of small town insularity, her characters are unsympathetic and her vision disturbing.
