"Men come and go. They go to war and die. They get diseases and die. They meet other women and leave, then you wish they would die. But home is forever. And we'll always have Joyeuse." These are the words of the slave girl and great great grandmother of Faye, the last servivor and owner of Joyeuse, a southern mansion on an island off of the gulf coast in the panhandle of Florida. Faye, a strugling arciologist, is fighting to save her ancestrial home. Then bodies start to turn up on her Island and the mystery begins. I really enjoyed the story and liked the characters.
Very exciting story line, edge of your seat. Historically interesting. All around entertaining book.
There is something about this story and author I cannot forget, so I've added the book to my wish list again. The story is haunting and interesting. I can't remember another book that I've wanted to "get back" and keep.
Very interesting read. The story is about a "pot-hunter", Faye Longchamps, who is trying to save her ancestral home on an island off the Florida panhandle. There's also a couple of murder mysteries. A couple of archaelogy students were murdered on the island, and Faye also discovers the bones of a missing heiress who had been murdered fourth years before. Lots of history of the Florida Panhandle in the mix as well.
