shortDescription
From the New York Times bestselling author of the Tradd Street novels comes an enthralling southern gothic saga about one woman's quest for the truth...
When Vivien Walker left her home in the Mississippi Delta, she swore never to go back. But in the spring, nine years to the day since she'd left, Vivien returns, fleeing from a broken marriage and her lost dreams for children.
What she hopes to find is solace with her dear grandmother who raised her, a Walker woman with a knack for making everything all right. Instead Vivien is forced into the unexpected role of caretaker, challenging her personal quest to find the girl she once was. But things will change again in ways Vivien cannot imagine. A violent storm has revealed the remains of a long-dead woman buried near the Walker home, not far from the cypress swamp that is soon to give up its ghosts.
Vivien knows there is now only one way to rediscover herself—by uncovering the secrets of her family...
