"From the Hardcover edition.
"Totally engrossing.... Unforgettable.... An absolutely grand story.... A lyrical and compelling family drama.... Mountfern and its residents come vibrantly alive."
-- The Plain Dealer.
"The secrets hidden behind lace curtains, a young girl's first kiss, children's summer games, unexpected pregnancies, sudden deaths. She makes us feel as if we also know the place and the people.... One of those good old-fashioned stories that are as comfortable and comforting as home itself."
-- The Philadelphia Inquirer
