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.
This is the best book I have read in months. I actually listened to it on audio which I think made it better because of the music. You can hear Sixteen Moons on the authors’ website and you really need to listen to it. I prefer the moody version.
One of the things I liked about the book is the small town. I swear I have met variations on most of the characters in the book because of the small towns I have lived in myself.
Oh yes. The dog’s name is priceless.
