From one of our most acclaimed writers comes this dramatic tale of a well-born Southern woman whose life is forever changed by the betrayal of her mother and by the man she loves.Growing up, the only place tomboy Thayer Wentworth felt at home was at her summer camp-Camp Sherwood Forest in the North Carolina Mountains. It was there that she came alive and where she met Nick Abrams, her first love ... and first heartbreak.Years later, Thayer marries aengus, an Irish professor, and they move into her deceased grandmother's house in Atlanta, only miles from Camp Edgewood on Burnt Mountain where her father died years ago in a car accident. There, aengus and Thayer lead quiet and happy lives until aengus is invited up to the camp to tell old Irish tales to the campers. As aengus spends less time at home and becomes more distant, Thayer must confront dark secrets-about her mother, her first love, and, most devastating of all, her husband.

Professional reviews

"BURNT MOUNTAIN engages the listener with suspense, vivid and charming descriptions, and characters to care about. Kate Reading imbues each character with a distinctive accent, timbre, and pitch. Her skillful portrayals of the principal players keep the listener wondering about the story's outcome all the way to the end. This dramatic Southern saga follows a privileged Atlanta family fraught with love, lust, betrayal, and loss. Layers of dark secrets are revealed as Thayer Wentworth grows up and moves beyond her careful upbringing to marry an Irish professor, who is inexorably drawn into Burnt Mountain's web of deceit. Told in a series of flashbacks, the novel has time lines that are confusing and period references that are flawed. A.W. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
