Set in Ireland, this is the story of a young woman who loses her father to suicide, her mother to mental illness, and eventually has to leave her home. Destitute, Tamara Goodwin and her mother must move to the country to live with her uncle and aunt, Arthur and Rosaleen. Rosaleen's controlling ways make Tamara edgy, so she begins to explore the area. She discovers a beautiful castle and meets two interesting locals; a fiesty nun and a good looking guy who drives a traveling library bus. Tamara checks out a book with empty pages and notices that the pages start to fill up with her thoughts from the following day. Hmmm.
Listen to the book on CD if you happen to like Irish brogues.
