I am spending my summer traveling with BookSparks in this year’s #SRC2015. Right now, I am traveling with The Witch of Bourbon Street by Suzanne Palmieri. Destination: Get jazzy in New Orleans.
About The Book:
Situated deep in the Louisiana bayou is the formerly opulent Sorrow Estate. Once home to a magical family - the Sorrows - it now sits in ruins, ever since a series of murders in 1902 shocked the entire community. Now the ghosts of girls in white dresses shift in and out of view, stuck in time as they live out the past on repeat. When Frances Green Sorrow is born carrying the "signs" of the so-called chosen one, it is believed she will bring her family back from the brink of obscurity, finally resurrecting the glory of what it once was and setting the Sorrows ghosts free. But Frances is no savior. Fleeing from heartbreak, she seeks solace in the seductive chaos of New Orleans, only to end up married too young in an attempt to live an ordinary life. When her marriage falls apart shortly after having a son, she returns home again - alone - just out of reach from the prying eyes of her family. But when her son disappears, she is forced to rejoin the world she left behind, exposing her darkest secret in order to find him and discovering the truth of what really happened that fateful year in the process. Set amidst the colorful charm of The French Quarter and remote bayous of Tivoli Parish, Louisiana, Suzanne Palmieri's The Witch of Bourbon Street is a story of family, redemption, and forgiveness. Because sometimes, the most important person you have to forgive....is yourself.
I gobbled this book up! I read it in one day! Yes, one day! I was fortunate to have a day to myself, and began reading, and reading, and reading. By the time it was nightfall, the book was finished! Such a good story, and I love this author!
