Library Journal Review

In this tale inspired by Grace Metalious's Peyton Place, Annie Barnes is a best-selling author who grew up feeling like an outcast in Middle River, NH. Her mother supposedly died of Parkinson's disease, and her sister Phoebe appears to display similar symptoms. In an effort to find out why her mother died, Annie returns to her hometown and finds love, family, a home, and peace with herself. She and the doctor who misdiagnosed her mother's condition discuss the higher incidence of illness among Middle River residents than the average population. They suspect an environmental cause, possibly mercury poisoning linked to the Northwood Paper Mill, owned by the most influential family in town. The plot thickens when an anonymous emailer offers Annie information about the mill. Listeners with a desire for a mindless page turner and a quick plot will find all the right components in this romantic suspense novel narrated by Julia Gibson and Richard Ferrone. Recommended for large popular fiction collections.-Carol Stern, Glen Cove P.L., NY (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
