This debut novel is a real page-turner written in the tradition of Pat Conroy. Set on a barrier island about 10 miles from Charleston, South Carolina, this story revolves around Arlena Prince, a recent transplant who becomes a ghostwriter to the wealthiest Charleston families. In the process of writing their family histories, Arlena becomes involved in a tangled plot of drugs, murder and island voodoo.
