This fairytale begins when Sophie Petheram’s dear father dies.
Sophie moves from New England to the Wyndriven Abbey in the Mississippi, to live with her French godfather
Monsieur Bernard de Cressac, who she never met. His enchanting handsomeness can
only be matched by his mysterious life. Soon Sophie begins to unravel his past
and becomes very disenchanted. Sophie goes from having daydreams, to nightmares.
This great girl meets people and loses them, but stays strong.
This book is
highly intriguing. It deserves 5 stars, and is mysterious yet romantic. And it
tells how a shut-in girl can become brave and strong.
