When a young woman returns to North Carolina after a
thirty-year absence, she finds that the once grand tobacco
plantation she called home holds more secrets than she ever
Though Peak Plantation has been in her family for
generations, Leslie Nichols canĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t wait to rid herself of
the farm left to her by her estranged grandmother
MaggieĂ˘â‚¬â€ťand with it the disturbing memories of her
motherĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s death, her fatherĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s disgrace, and her unhappy
childhood. But Leslie isnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t the only one with a claim to Peak.
Jay Davenport, PeakĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s reclusive caretaker, has his own
reasons for holding onto the land bequeathed to him by
LeslieĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s grandmother. Before she died, Maggie hinted at a
terrible secret surrounding Adele Laveau, a ladyĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s maid
who came to Peak during the 1930s and died under mysterious
circumstances. Jay is haunted by MaggieĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s story, yet the
truth eludes himĂ˘â‚¬â€ťuntil Leslie uncovers a cryptically
marked grave on the property.
As they delve into the mystery of AdeleĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s death, Leslie
and Jay discover shocking secrets that extend deep into the
roots of LeslieĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s family treeĂ˘â‚¬â€ťsecrets that have the
power to alter her life forever.
