Description

In debt after her husband's unexpected death, Meg Rosenthal secures a job as a teacher at an upstate New York boarding school. Leaving suburban Long Island, Meg and her teenage daughter, Sally, embark on a new life in Arcadia Falls, a beautiful but isolated small town and the inspiration for a number of magically eerie fairy tales. With a hurtful rift growing between her and her daughter, Meg is hopeful that the change of scene will provide them with a fresh start. But it soon becomes clear to Meg that this isolated community hides deeply rooted and deadly secrets. And after a mysterious death, Arcadia Falls begins to reveal a disturbing dark side.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Jen Taylor offers a wry, warm portrayal of Meg Rosenthal, recently widowed mom. Narrator Jen Taylor's talent is obvious in the first conversation between Meg and her petulant teenage daughter, Sally. It's truly astonishing that one person voices both characters. Taylor also brings to life the various denizens of the arty Arcadia School, where Meg has come to teach. Particularly strong is her portrayal of the enigmatic headmistress, Ivy St. Clare. As Meg unearths the secrets of the school's sordid history, Goodman deftly explores the conflicts involved in being both an artist and a mother. F.J.K. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
