""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.
