A family flees the crime-ridden city--and finds something worse--in "a brilliantly imagined horror story" by the New York Times-bestselling author (The Boston Globe). After watching his asthmatic daughter suffer in the foul city air, Theodore Constantine decides to get back to the land. When he and his wife search New England for the perfect nineteenth-century home, they find no township more charming, no countryside more idyllic than the farming village of Cornwall Coombe. Here they begin a new life: simple, pure, close to nature--and ultimately more terrifying than Manhattan's darkest alley.   When the Constantines win the friendship of the town matriarch, the mysterious Widow Fortune, they are invited to join the ancient festival of Harvest Home, a ceremony whose quaintness disguises dark intentions. In this bucolic hamlet, where bootleggers work by moonlight and all of the villagers seem to share the same last name, the past is more present than outsiders can fathom--and something far more sinister than the annual harvest is about to rise out of the earth.   Credited as the inspiration for Stephen King's Children of the Corn, Thomas Tryon's chilling novel was ahead of its time when first published, and continues to provoke abject terror in readers.    … (mehr)

A slow, long, descriptive mystery into a small town that hasn’t changed since its founding. ( )

This book and I really did an interesting back and forth dance at first. This book was extremely difficult for me to read and get into up until about chapter 13 of 30. However, once it picked up, it really picked up and climaxed very quickly and well. Being a horror fan I was able to figure out the "twist" at the end however I'm sure the leisure reader would be thrown for a loop by it. The detail in the book went way overboard at times and by the end of the book the author's tendency to over-explain settings and/or situations became rather monotonous. But again, the story's core was well thought out and worth the read in the end. And I definitely love the story. I would definitely recommend this book. ( )

Tyron has been likened to Stephen King. I'm not sure I would concur with that comparison. This book of 400 pages has absolutely no action or plot movement until page 300. I was just about to give it a DNF and then something happened! The author did a good job of describing the life and inhabitants of sleepy Cornwall Coombe. All of this town's energy is given over to farming and the 5 day celebration in the fall known as Harvest Home, which is celebrated every seven years. The ritual is bazaar, as one would expect from this horror "classic." I'm glad I read it, but it was too much of a slow burn for me. ( )

Took me awhile to get into the story but got hooked. ( )

After reading the book, my only regret is that Cornwall Coombe is not a real place and I cannot go live there. Too bad, because I would fit right in.....I'd totally give that Tamar Penrose a run for her money in succeeding the Widow Fortune as the village matriarch. ( )

In Harvest-time, harvest folk
servants and all,
Should make all together
good cheer in the hall,
And fill the black bowl
Of blyth to their song,
And let them be merry,
all harvest-time long.

Thomas Tusser, Elizabethan farmer-poet

Love the earth and it must love you back.
Thinking back from this day to that one nine months ago, I now imagine that bird to have been sounding a warning.
She pointed upward. "See that blue sky now, that's God's sky. And up there in that vasty blue is God. But see how far away He is. See how far the sky. And look here, at the earth, see how close, how abiding and faithful it is. See this little valley of ours, see the bountiful harvest we're to have. God's fine, but it's old Mother Earth that's the friend to man."
Harvest Home's when the last of the corn comes in, when the harvestin's done and folks can relax and count their blessin's. A time o' joy and celebration.
"A woman always thinks it takes two to keep a secret, but I'm here to say I think it takes one."
