Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she’s struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.
Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town’s oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.
In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.
First of all, I cannot believe I am six months behind in posting my book journal. I haven’t even kept the list updated since February and this is from November. I will never get caught up.
Anyway, I love this book. I have been telling everyone that it is my favorite book from the past year and not just my favorite Young Adult book. I am recommending it to everyone. Well, everyone female. I don’t think the guys would get past the romance in it.
I haven’t read the sequel yet because I have been told it has a real cliff-hanger ending. I will wait for the sequel to be published first.
