Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author Anne Rivers Siddons comes a bittersweet and finely wrought story of friendship, family, and Charleston society.

At 12, Emily Parmenter is left mostly to herself after her mother disappears and her beloved older brother dies. Emily has built a life around the faded plantation where her remote father and hunting-obsessed brothers raise hunting spaniels. It is a meager, masculine world, but to Emily it has magic.

And then comes Lulu Foxworth, troubled daughter of a truly grand plantation, who has run away from her hectic Charleston debutante season. Where Emily's father sees Lulu as an entree to society, Emily is threatened and mystified. Lulu has a powerful enchantment of her own, and this, along with the dark, crippling secret she brings with her, will inevitably blow Emily's world apart and let the real one in, but at a terrible price.

"A page-turner. The setting and the isolated life will remind readers of Sue Monk Kidd's The Mermaid Chair." (USA Today)
