IN SAVANNAH GEORGIA, THE GARDENS AREN'T THE ONLY THINGS KEEPING SECRETS. "I want to know what goes on in your head," Adam said. "What do you think about? What are your dreams?" "My dreams," Savannah said, picking up her spoon and stirring her coffee again. She stared into the swirling depths as if she could conjure up the specter of the girl who once had dreams to spare. "Funny thing is—I got everything I wanted." Where do you go when you find out everything you wanted isn't what you need? Savannah Palmerton picks up a brush and heads to an art class, desperate to find a piece of the girl she used to be, before the country club dances and the boring dinner party conversations. In 1963 the country is still playing in her innocence, but there are rumblings beneath the surface. The fabric of America is just beginning to fray around the edges. So it is in Savannah Palmerton's life. Love, betrayal and family secrets create a lethal cocktail that has Savannah's world unraveling at her feet. Set against a southern backdrop of garden parties and civil rights marches, Paper Castles is a sultry mix of sweet-tea and murder. Sex and secrets. Paper Castles is the best kind of love story. Where a woman must first learn to love herself.

"In this deeply satisfying novel, romance can come in many forms...Lee's richly detailed and polished exploration of that romance is bolstered by the insight and oftentimes raw exploration of a person's inner landscape. ... This is an exceptional book. -Book Life by Publisher's Weekly Book Life Prize in Fiction"More than a simple contemporary romance, Lee manages to balance intrigue, historical events, and courtroom drama that feels cinematic. The prose sparkles with turns of phrase that carry as much personality as the southern characters that inhabit the novel. Lee's personification of emotions is incredible...The characters feel real, as though they could have existed in such a time and place, their experiences varied and colored by the historical events happening around them. PAPER CASTLES is an engrossing, intricate character study replete with captivating surprises right up until the very last act. An emotional, satisfying journey that should not be missed. 5 STARS." -Indie Reader"A fantastic and powerful read. The big point that makes Paper Castles stand out is that it's visceral and real; it reads like a life truly lived, with all of life's strengths and weaknesses. With superb editing and an enchanting cover to finish the deal, anyone willing to get into Savannah's shoes will find that Paper Castles is a real page-turner that will keep you guessing at every turn." 5 STARS --Self Publishing Review Product DescriptionEdit
