In debt after her husband's unexpected death, Meg Rosenthal secures a job as a teacher at an upstate New York boarding school. Leaving suburban Long Island, Meg and her teenage daughter, Sally, embark on a new life in Arcadia Falls, a beautiful but isolated small town and the inspiration for a number of magically eerie fairy tales.

With a hurtful rift growing between her and her daughter, Meg is hopeful that the change of scene will provide them with a fresh start. But it soon becomes clear to Meg that this isolated community hides deeply rooted and deadly secrets. And after a mysterious death, Arcadia Falls begins to reveal a disturbing dark side.

    " I would have given it 4 stars ntil the last chapter. She lost me in the end. "

    " I picked this up randomly at the library. I finished it but it was not my cup of tea. A little too obvious, a little too plodding. "

    " I love Carol Goodman! The setting isn't anything new--a boarding school in upstate New York--but the plot is fresh and exciting. I thought I had everything figured out but, of course, that was exaclty what the author wanted. It did get a little messy at the end with all the twists, but that's why I enjoy Goodman's work. "

    " It seems like the further along I progressed in this book, the lower my opinion grew of it. Carol Goodman is, to me, an example of how an author can be very clearly knowledgeable on the historic facts and research of her book, and yet still not come up with a good novel. The book started out on a high note, with the wonderful descriptions of an early 1900s women's art commune in upper state New York, a decrepit cottage with Morris chairs, wallpaper with designs of "wilted lettuce", and carvings on the furniture and fireplace. But as the book progressed, the plotline became more and more implausible, until the very end of the book, when the final twist leaves you rolling your eyes in agony. I am definitely not the only reviewer who found it to be so...many people have complained about Carol Goodman's seeming talent for starting a story that hooks you in, only to end it in an utterly over-the-top yet anticlimactic way.
