Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From one of our most acclaimed writers comes this dramatic tale of a well-born Southern woman whose life is forever changed by the betrayal of her mother and by the man she loves

Growing up, the only place tomboy Thayer Wentworth felt at home was at her summer camp - Camp Sherwood Forest in the North Carolina Mountains. It was there that she came alive and where she met Nick Abrams, her first love...and first heartbreak.



Years later, Thayer marries Aengus, an Irish professor, and they move into her deceased grandmother's house in Atlanta, only miles from Camp Edgewood on Burnt Mountain where her father died years ago in a car accident. There, Aengus and Thayer lead quiet and happy lives until Aengus is invited up to the camp to tell old Irish tales to the campers. As Aengus spends less time at home and becomes more distant, Thayer must confront dark secrets-about her mother, her first love, and, most devastating of all, her husband.

Synopsis:

Born to a wealthy family in Middletown, Georgia, the only place tomboy Thayer Wentworth felt at home was at her summer camp — Camp Greyledge on Burnt Mountain in North Georgia. It was there that she came alive and where she met Nick Abrams, her first love...and first heartbreak.

Years later, to her family's dismay, Thayer marries Aengus, an Irish professor, and they move into her deceased grandmother's house in Atlanta, only miles from her beloved Camp Greyledge, now a boy's camp called Camp Forever. There, Aengus and Thayer lead quiet and happy lives until Aengus is invited up to Camp Forever to tell old Irish tales to the campers. As Aengus spends less and less time at home and becomes more and more distant, Thayer begins to realize something is not quite right at Camp Forever, and that the man she married is not the man she thought she knew.
