Perché ora Avery non riesce a togliersi quella sensazione di un mondo parallelo che lei non ha, o forse non ha voluto mai intuire. E qui è necessario fare un passo indietro.<br /><br />Memphis, 1939. La dodicenne Rill Foss e i suoi quattro fratelli più piccoli vengono strappati alla loro vita magica a bordo di un battello sul Mississippi. È bastato che i genitori si allontanassero per una notte. Rapiti e condotti in un orfanotrofio del Tennessee, i bambini Foss sperano che i genitori vengano a salvarli ma la realtà è ben più cruda. La prospettiva è quella di essere venduti a ricche famiglie che non hanno figli e, tramite la crudele direttrice, così accadrà.<br /><br />Come potrà succedere che questa drammatica vicenda trovi dolorosamente la sua strada verso la coscienza di Avery e, dopo più di mezzo secolo, le apra gli occhi su un segreto che la sua famiglia ha nascosto da lungo tempo? Il cuore non dimentica mai il luogo a cui apparteniamo e per trovare il coraggio di amare occorre intraprendere quel viaggio.

Description :  Quando Iola Anne Poole, un’anziana signora dell’isola di Hatteras, muore nel letto della sua abitazione, Tandi Jo Reese viene incaricata di risistemare la casa della defunta che è anche proprietaria del cottage in cui lei abita. In fuga da un matrimonio oppressivo e da un passato tormentato che continua a perseguitare anche il suo presente, Tandi è scappata insieme ai suoi due bambini e ora vive di fronte alla splendida e sontuosa villa vittoriana della signora Poole. Anche se le due donne non si sono mai conosciute, è stata proprio Tandi a ritrovarla, ormai morta, nel suo letto. E da quel momento inizia per lei un viaggio spirituale alla scoperta di quella strana casa, dei segreti che racchiude e, infine, di sé stessa.
