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

At twelve, 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 entrée 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.

From AudioFile:

Anna Fields crafts an unforgettable voice in 11-year-old Emily Parmenter, who inhabits a beautiful but isolated world on her father's spaniel-breeding plantation. When Lulu Foxworth, a troubled Carolina debutante who craves the plantation's isolation for mysterious reasons, arrives for a summer stay, the tempo of Emily's world falters, and unease becomes palpable. Fields's characters are all fully fleshed. In particular, the family cook, Cleta, is a joy; her gravelly world-weary mutterings are a counterpoint to the drawling bellow of Emily's father and the bittersweet shifts of Emily's own voice as it travels from youthful bewilderment, to awakening awareness, to clear-eyed understanding of an adult world. A superior read of a memorable book. A.M.D. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
