Author Info
Anne Rivers Siddons
Anne Rivers Siddons was born an only child in the small railroad town of Fairburn, Georgia. Her father was a title lawyer and her mother, a high school secretary. Siddons studied commercial art at Auburn University while editing and writing for "The Auburn Plainsman." She worked in advertising in Atlanta after graduation, became a senior editor for "Atlanta" magazine in 1964, and earned a doctorate from Oglethorpe University in Atlanta. She married her husband, Heyward L. Siddons, in 1966. In 1974, Siddons became a full-time writer, producing a long list of best-selling contemporary and traditional romances that vary widely in themes, but are most often set in the South and deal with troubled families and relationships.
Praise
"Siddons mixes in a touch of the supernatural to bring the novel to an exciting climax, but what's most appealing here is the layered family drama and the lush world Thayer inhabits."
From the Publisher
Annotation In this complex and intricate contemporary domestic drama from Southern romance specialist Anne Rivers Siddons, a Georgia woman named Thayer Wentworth begins to vividly recollect the details of her first love when she and her husband move into a home near the summer camp she frequented as a child.
Editors Note Growing up, the only place tomboy Thayer Wentworth felt at home was at her summer camp - Camp Sherwood Forest in the North Carolina Mountains. It was there that she came alive and where she met Nick Abrams, her first love...and first heartbreak.Years later, Thayer marries Aengus, an Irish professor, and they move into her deceased grandmother's house in Atlanta, only miles from Camp Edgewood on Burnt Mountain where her father died years ago in a car accident. There, Aengus and Thayer lead quiet and happy lives until Aengus is invited up to the camp to tell old Irish tales to the campers. As Aengus spends less time at home and becomes more distant, Thayer must confront dark secrets-about her mother, her first love, and, most devastating of all, her husband.
