An unparalleled picture of that vibrant but dark intersection where the Old and the New South collide. Thirtysomething Colquitt and Walter Kennedy live in a charming, peaceful suburb of newly bustling Atlanta, Georgia. Life is made up of enjoyable work, long, lazy weekends, and the company of good neighbors.

One of four iconic American Haunted House novels. This book is like nothing Siddons ever wrote before or since. Her milieu is generally the contemporary New South, Old South social drama.
