Overview

Sarah Addison Allen dá-nos as boas-vindas a uma nova povoação: Walls of Water, na Carolina do Norte, onde os segredos são mais espessos do que o nevoeiro das famosas quedas-d'água da cidade, e as superstições são, de facto, reais. Willa Jackson vem de uma antiga família que ficou arruinada gerações antes. A mansão Blue Ridge Madam, construída pelo bisavô de Willa durante a época área de Walls of Water, e outrora a mais grandiosa casa da cidade, foi durante anos um monumento solitário à infelicidade e ao escândalo. Mas Willa soube há pouco que uma antiga colega de escola - a elegante Paxton Osgood - da abastada família Osgood, restaurou a Blue Ridge Madam e a devolveu à sua antiga glória, tencionando transformá-la numa elegante pousada. Talvez, por fim, o passado possa ser deixado para trás enquanto algo novo e maravilhoso se ergue das suas cinzas. Mas o que se ergue, afinal, é um esqueleto, encontrado sob o solitário pessegueiro da propriedade, que com certeza irá fazer surgir coisas terríveis. Pois os ossos, pertencentes ao carismático vendedor ambulante Tucker Devlin, que exerceu os seus encantos sombrios em Walls of Water setenta e cinco anos antes, não são tudo o que está escondido longe da vista e do coração. Surgem igualmente segredos há muito guardados, aparentemente anunciados por uma súbita onda de estranhos acontecimentos em toda a cidade.

Sarah Addison Allen
Sarah Addison Allen
Since her 2007 debut novel, Garden Spells, North Carolina novelist Sarah Addison Allen has been whipping up her unique brand of fiction writing – a delightful concoction she describes as "Southern-fried magic realism."

Biography

North Carolina novelist Sarah Addison Allen brings the full flavor of her southern upbringing to bear on her fiction -- a captivating blend of fairy tale magic, heartwarming romance, and small-town sensibility.

Born and raised in Asheville, in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Allen grew up with a love of books and an appreciation of good food (she credits her journalist father for the former and her mother, a fabulous cook, for the latter). In college, she majored in literature -- because, as she puts it, "I thought it was amazing that I could get a diploma just for reading fiction. It was like being able to major in eating chocolate."

After graduation in 1994, Allen began writing seriously. She sold a few stories and penned romances for Harlequin under the pen name Katie Gallagher; but her big break occurred in 2007 with the publication of her first mainstream novel, Garden Spells, a modern-day fairy tale about an enchanted apple tree and the family of North Carolina women who tend it. Booklist called Allen's accomplished debut "spellbindingly charming," and the novel became a BookSense pick and a Barnes & Noble Recommends selection.

Since then, Allen has continued to serve heaping helpings of the fantastic and the familiar in fiction she describes as "Southern-fried magic realism." Clearly, it's a recipe readers are happy to eat up as fast as she can dish it out.

Good To Know

Some interesting outtakes from our interview with Allen:

"I love food. The comforting and sensual nature of food always seems to find its way into what I write. Garden Spells involves edible flowers. My book out in 2008 involves southern and rural candies. Book three, barbeque. But, you know what? I'm a horrible cook."

"In college I worked for a catalog company, taking orders over the phone. Occasionally celebrities would call in their own orders. My brush with celebrity? I took Bob Barker's order."

"I was a Star Wars fanatic when I was a kid. I have the closet full of memorabilia to prove it -- action figures, trading cards, comic books, notebooks with ‘Mrs. Mark Hamill' written all over the pages. I can't believe I just admitted that."

"While I was writing this, a hummingbird came to check out the trumpet vine outside my open window. I stopped typing and sat very still, mesmerized, my hands frozen on the keys, until it flew away. I looked back to my computer and ten minutes had passed in a flash."

"I love being a writer."
