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.

    " I took this book off the book shelf at the train station. I needed something to read since I recenlty finished Wench. It is holding my attention so far. Her style of writing is different from what I'm use to. I like it. At times the author can be too descriptive, but overall the point is conveyed. This is mainly about an introverted 12 year old girl understanding herself, her family and all the wonderful and tragic truths within it as she approaches turning 13 and blossoming into a mature young lady. "

    " This story was a bit of a downer for me. I didn't like waiting for the fall to come and when it did, it was just like I expected. I'll keep reading the author because I hear she's great, but not an impressive start for me. "

    " Want to read her other books. One before this one is Islands (I think). "
