A dear, heartaching story of a young girl growing to womanhood virtually ignored in a house of father, brothers and spaniels. The love of her dog and the memory of her dead brother sustain her until puberty, when she falls under the spell of troubled Charleston beauty Lulu. Poignant, amazing, and worth every minute of the read.

I loved this book. One of Anne Rivers Siddons most compelling! It is a wonderful story with many unexpected twists and turns. You hardly know which side you are on. It turns a young girl into a fine young woman, the hard way. This would make a great vacation will be engrossed.

What a wonderful story! I LOVED this book. Couldn't put it down! Anne Rivers Siddons once again has created a great tale set in South Carolina's Low country. Very vivid characters, a beautiful setting, and ARS's writing style make this a must read! If you like dogs, you will especially love this book as one of the main characters is a beautiful hunting spaniel. This book has the feeling of a classic!

When Siddons writes of the low country of South Carolina, she takes you along and makes you feel as if you live there. She develops characters like the master writer she is.

Siddons' books always deliver a heart wrenching story of the low country.

I didn't think I'd stick with this book... a little slow in the beginning but if the reader sticks with it the story gets more interesting. In the end, I felt it was a good book.
