Product description

Product Description

It's Fannie Flagg meets Sarah Addison Allen in a southern family saga loaded with dysfunction, some humor and wait for it - redemption. The current generation, Nettie, twenty-one, is searching, looking for herself. She suspects the dysfunction and isolation of her little family began generations before her. The perception and sensitivity she relied on to bolster her through a neglected childhood have disappeared and with them her sense of self. Nettie also seeks the truth, information about her family and the mysteries that whisper to her in their eccentric home. She receives glimpses in the alcohol induced monologues of her mother, Delores Cecelia, “DeCe”. However, DeCe lost herself long before Nettie was born, and she buried her secrets so deep, even the spirits haunting her cannot unlock her soul. Pup, Nettie’s peculiar uncle, may have witnessed the most recent chaos, but he can't communicate what he knows. Nettie’s struggles are apparent to her extended family and neighbors, but only she can resolve to overcome the pull of the notorius Kirkland family and Berclaire estate. The secrets fester and DeCe clings to them like the neglected ivy tendrils on the shadowed side of the mansion. Slowly, the truth will unfold, but will it be enough to free Nettie, or will it be the undoing of her mother, DeCe?

A once scenic and productive ranch just north of the Bolivar Peninsula on the Texas coast is the setting for the Kirkland family's story. They were lucky gamblers in New Orleans taunted by a voodoo princess to wager everything on a chance to win a drunk Texan's ranch. Like many lottery winners, the windfall was the beginning of excesses that would lead a young couple to define themselves by their property and possessions and in the process lose their souls. It was the generations after this, refusing to give up the haunted ranch house, that would cling to the legacy tainting their own children. The Kirkland curse would continue unless someone finally put a stop to it. Could it be Nettie, the girl born without a father, but with the gift of perception?
