This was a wonderful book...one that I didn't want to end! It delves into the past and present of the main character in a way that you really know her and want her to overcome the scars of her past. I plan to read other books by this author!

Couldn't get into it. I usually enjoy Siddons' books, but this one was tough to handle.

After twenty-one years Micah (Mike) Winship is making the big move--she's going home for a visit. She hasn't been back since 1963, when her father threw her out, but now he is dying and asking for her. And although she is armed with her succesful journalism career and the strength found after her divorce, she is nearing forty and her sophisticated urban lifestyle is falling apart.

Heading home, Mike is unprepared for a past that has lain in wait for her--one that includes an old love, a spoiled sister, and a plot to seize her family's land. And in trying to understand her long-forgotten self, she learns at last those lessons best learned early about love and loss, family and forgiveness, and the undeniable need for a place called home.

One of the best books I've read in a long time, and the first Anne Rivers Siddons books. I will be looking for other books by her.
