Book Description:
As a small girl, Lillian Booth is captivated by everything life has to offer. Hers is a world full of grand soirees and parties, of sunshine and promises, as thrilling as the fairy tales Mama spins for her and her sickly little sister, Eugenia. No one, not even her cold, stern Papa and her Bible-spouting sister Emily, can crush her spirits – until the day Emily reveals the shattering secret of Lillian’s birth, a secret Mama sadly cannot deny. Still Lillian clings steadfastly to all that is bright and beautiful, never believing Emily’s hateful claim that she is evil, a curse … not even when sweet, gentle Eugenia loses her fragile hold on life, and Mama retreats further into her fantasies. Though now The Meadows often seems filled with shadows, Lillian struggles to endure Emily’s cruel taunts and malicious pranks. She takes keen joy in her schooling and in her friends … especially the one boy whose tender heart mirrors her own. But when tragedy befalls her young sweetheart, Lillian cannot help believing Emily’s grim words. Meekly, she submits to the penance devised by Emily and Papa, finding a strange solace in the endless repetition of prayers in a room stripped of all comforts. Lillian’s heart is torn anew when, in a drunken haze, Papa subjects her the most brutal degradation. Then Papa loses The Meadows in a card game, and Lillian is faced with a new and terrifying prospect. Arrogant, handsome playboy Bill Cutler will return the plantation – if Lillian will marry him! Afraid to defy Papa’s will, Lillian must leave her girlhood home behind – and make a bold new beginning as the mistress of a hotel called Cutler’s Cove.
