At times she proved such a great point. Follow Gerald in this gripping medieval fantasy about a warrior who refuses to retreat. Heathcliffs I Have Known: At the age of thirty she married Heyward Siddons, and she and her husband now live in Charleston, South Carolina, and spend summers in Maine. Despite all this, I did enjoy this novel and would certainly recommend it to ARS fans. Definitely not my favorite Siddons book but a fine vacation read. Lists with This Book.
Harper Voyager science fiction and fantasy. Well written with likeable characters we come to care about.
I finished the book wishing that I had a "Nora" in my life! A bit of a slow start but once Nora appears she sets this story in motion. I actually stayed in bed one Sunday morning a luxury for me just to finish it.
Her characters are human and although I thought for a moment this would be the typical happy ending Siddons throws a curve ball and brings us back to the reality that people do stupid things and mess up their lives I enjoyed this alot. It is both a coming of age story, a love story but with the realities of the disappointing aspects of life. I categorize her as a female, pat Conroy , who I love also. Captured the emotional struggle of coming of age in the South in the turbulent 60s Honest, well-written and a fun read. This is a good, easy to read, historical novel. Story of family life One person found this helpful.

Siddons has written a string of bestsellers, including Low Country and Outer Banks, whose titles reflect their Southern settings. The author's finest achievement in her new book may be with the character Peyton, a year-old girl hovering unwillingly on the brink of adulthood in an era when gender dictated more rigid roles than it does now.
Siddons accurately captures the impulse that leads even the best-hearted adults to make children over in their own image. One of the novel's funniest and most painful episodes is Peyton's trip to the beauty parlor, where tomboy Peyton is made over into a southern belle, complete with heavy makeup, under her aunt's iron hand.
The next day, Peyton gets transformed, yet again, into the image of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's by her nightclub hopping, feminist cousin Nora. Nora, Nora effectively explores the extent to which people fail to change. The novel's three principle characters are trapped not only in the mores of a small southern town, which the civil rights movement threatens to leave behind, but also in their own individual comfort zones.
