Tufa Synopsis: The Hum and the Shiver is the first Tufa novel by Alex Bledsoe. No one knows where the Tufa came from, or how they ended up in the Smoky Mountains. While the origins of the Tufa may be a mystery, there are hints of their true nature buried in the songs they have passed down for generations. Bronwyn Hyatt, a pure-blood Tufa, has always insisted on doing things her own way, regardless of the consequences. Even though Tufa rarely leave the area, she enlisted in the Army to escape the pressures of Tufa life – her family, her obligations as a First Daughter, and her dangerous ex-boyfriend. But after barely surviving a devastating ambush that killed most of her fellow soldiers, Private Hyatt returns to Cloud County wounded in body and in spirit. But danger lurks in the mountains and hollows of her childhood home. Cryptic omens warn of impending tragedy, and a restless “haint” lurks nearby, waiting to reveal Bronwyn’s darkest secrets. Worst of all, Bronwyn has lost touch with the music that was once a vital part of her identity. Now Bronwyn finds the greatest battle to be right here at home, where her obligations struggle with her need for freedom, and if she makes the wrong choice, the consequences could be deadly for all the Tufa…
