Read this years ago

I read this book a couple of years ago. Hopefully, you will let readers know that this is not a new release.

    I totally enjoyed this book! The relationships between the characters were so well developed and believable. The descriptions of the Island and of the Atlanta were dead-on. I found myself laughing and crying. Can't wait to read more from this author.

    Wonderful Author

    This was the first book I read by Anne Rivers Siddons several years ago. I enjoyed it so much, I purchased it for my NOOK and read it again! She writes so well and describes everything in so much detail you feel like you are a part of the story. I have also read more of her books and feel the same about each of them.

    A book I couldn't put down!

    I have been reading a lot of murder mysteries and decided I needed a change! I loved the storyline of this book! I would reccommend it to everyone.

    Compelling--You won't forget it

    I first read this novel years ago and while on vacation this summer, picked it up again. I liked it even more the second time! The richness of characters and the strong sense of place drew me right back in and I discovered insights I'd missed the first time. Siddons wrote a keeper.
