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.

This book made me look forward to my daily commute. The narration was so soothing and real. I felt as if a friend was sitting next to me telling me her life story. Even though Thayer came from a privileged background she suffered many heartbreaks. I loved all the characters, even Aengus, except for her pretentious, shallow twit of a mother. Granny's house in Atlanta sounded like one of my dreams come true. I did not get the vibe of supernatural events in the end, but every reader needs to decide that for him/herself.

Nothing really great, it had potential but lost steam at the end.

The book was ARS's usual great story until the sudden ending. It was rushed, bizarre and unlike Siddons usual good works (seemed as if someone else wrote the the last part of the bk) It ruined the otherwise good piece.
