When a young woman returns to North Carolina after a thirty-year absence, she finds that the once grand tobacco plantation she called home holds more secrets than she ever imagined. Though Peak Plantation has been in her family for generations, Leslie Nichols can't wait to rid herself of the farm left to her by her estranged grandmother Maggie-and with it the disturbing memories of her mother's death, her father's disgrace, and her unhappy childhood. But Leslie isn't the only one with a claim to Peak. Jay Davenport, Peak's reclusive caretaker, has his own reasons for holding onto the land bequeathed to him by Leslie's grandmother. Before she died, Maggie hinted at a terrible secret surrounding Adele Laveau, a lady's maid who came to Peak during the 1930s and died under mysterious circumstances. Jay is haunted by Maggie's story, yet the truth eludes him-until Leslie uncovers a cryptically marked grave on the property. As they delve into the mystery of Adele's death, Leslie and Jay discover shocking secrets that extend deep into the roots of Leslie's family tree-secrets that have the power to alter her life forever.… (mais)

I like the way Davis writes but for me....this one was a tiny bit too formulaic -- I could see where it was going a little too early and yet things also seemed to be happening a little too fast....Oh well. Perfectly good escapist reading! Of course, still horrific to see what mattered at the time and, unfortunately, what STILL matters to far too many-- the parts about race and time were well presented but the idea that it was all fine and dandy at the end of the novel....nope!

Excellent story by an excellent author. I look forward to more books by Barbara Davis. She crafts a compelling story of several generations of women in Leslie's family in a manner that kept me devouring this book. ( )

I am really surprised at how much I really enjoyed this sweet little book. Such a good story and wonderful writing. Amazing for a newbie author. I will pick up her future books!

Thank you Edelweiss for the copy. Arc received for an honest review. ( )
