Overview
Brilliant, unusual writing. Chicago Tribune
On the banks of the Mississippi River, Tennyson Fontaine and her sister, Hattie, play endless games of hide-and-seek and make up fantastical stories about the latest adventures of their wild dog, Jos. But when their mother doesn t come home and their father sets off to find her, the sisters are whisked away to Aigredoux, the once-grand plantation of their ancestors, now in ruin.
Caught in a strange web of time, dreams, and history, Tennyson comes up with a plan to shine light on Aigredoux s past and bring her mother home. But like so many plans, Tennyson s has unexpected consequences. . . .
Lesley M. M. Blume weaves a heartbreakingly evocative story, steeped in Southern lore, about a child s struggle to come to terms with her family s dark past.
