Burnt Mountain by Anne Rivers Siddons
Years later, Thayer marries Aengus, an Irish professor, and they move into her deceased grandmother's house in Atlanta, only miles from Camp Edgewood on Burnt Mountain where her father died years ago in a car accident. There, Aengus and Thayer lead quiet and happy lives until Aengus is invited up to the camp to tell old Irish tales to the campers. As Aengus spends less time at home and becomes more distant, Thayer must confront dark secrets-about her mother, her first love, and, most devastating of all, her husband.
The story moved very slowly, but I was persistent. I was anticipating that it would eventually get better, but unfortunately the story did not capture my interest. Depressing and somewhat disturbing are the words that come to mind.
I honestly can't recommend this one. Others may enjoy it, but it wasn't my cup of tea.
