Summary

Summary

In the 1940s Coden, Alabama, was a hideaway for movie stars—an isolated playground tucked among live oaks and placid bay waters where pleasure and vice could be indulged. By the summer of 1974, Coden's glamour has faded, but it doesn't bother Mimi Bosarge, who is just happy to have a job as a live-in tutor with the wealthiest family in town, the Hendersons. When the Hendersons generously open their arms to Annie, a troubled teenager with no recollection of her past, Mimi's greatest concern is creating a curriculum for the family's new ward. But it soon becomes obvious that something is wrong. Annie seems suspiciously savvy for her young age, and Mimi can't quell the unnerving sense that there is something malicious about the waiflike beauty.

“A gem of a gothic thriller. You’ll be enthralled by this tale of lies and deceit until the last page and beyond. Each character is carefully wrought with the plot’s development in mind. A winner!” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)
