Summary

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

A USA Today bestseller

From one of our most acclaimed writers comes this dramatic tale of a well-born Southern woman whose life is forever changed by the betrayal of her mother and by the man she loves.

Growing up, the only place tomboy Thayer Wentworth felt at home was at her summer camp—Camp Sherwood Forest in the North Carolina Mountains. It was there that she came alive and where she met Nick Abrams, her first love … and first heartbreak.

Years later, Thayer marries Aengus, an Irish professor, and they move into her deceased grandmother's house in Atlanta, only miles from Camp Edgewood on Burnt Mountain where her father died years ago in a car accident. There, Aengus and Thayer lead quiet and happy lives until Aengus is invited up to the camp to tell old Irish tales to the campers. As Aengus spends less time at home and becomes more distant, Thayer must confront dark secrets—about her mother, her first love, and, most devastating of all, her husband.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Siddons’ venture into Celtic mythology is an interesting departure, and she makes the most of it…The author is still a master at building a narrative to an electrifying climax.” RT Book Reviews
“Siddons is at her usual incisive best at skewering the mores of socially pretentious Southerners, and her prose is limpid and mesmerizing.” Kirkus Reviews
“Siddons mixes in a touch of the supernatural to bring the novel to an exciting climax, but what’s most appealing here is the layered family drama and the lush world Thayer inhabits…A master storyteller with a remarkable track record, bestselling Siddons returns to her signature Southern setting in her newest blend of emotional realism and a sliver of magic.” Booklist
“One doesn’t read Anne Rivers Siddons’ books, one dwells in them.” Chicago Tribune, praise for the author
