A few of my girlfriends loved it, and are insisting I read this book ASAP before the movie comes out on February 14th. Looks like I’ll have plans with my girls on Valentine’s Day!! Yay me!
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.
Ohhhhh, “….one secret could change everything.” I’m very intrigued by this story being told from Ethan’s POV, so we are discovering Lena’s world through his eyes. Different.
Who’s read this book? There are mixed reviews.
