The Witch House of Persimmon PointeBook - 2016
"Antonietta Amore - lovingly nicknamed Anna by her family - was once a girl who took baths full of rose petals while she imagined a future of romance and travel outside of her home in the sprawling hills of Sicily. But now, hardened by time and a move to America, a land still rough around the edges, she simply goes by Nan as she tries to make a life for herself and the young daughter she never meant to have. Building her home, Haven House, from the sins and ruins of her past, she means it to be a sanctuary for the women of the Amore family. But blind to the power of her own feelings, Nan unwittingly imprisons those she loves most within its walls. Years later, when Eleanor Amore seeks refuge with her six-year-old daughter at their ancestral home, now dubbed "The Witch House" by locals, she knows her family's entire history is there waiting. What she doesn't know is how big a role the ghosts of the past will play in her future. The Witch House will always be there for Nan, and for the women who share her name, but it is up to Eleanor to discover how to free those who are trapped and to decide once and for all if The Witch House was meant to heal her or destroy her forever. Richly nuanced and full of deeply complex characters, Suzanne Palmieri's The Witch House of Persimmon Point is her most powerful novel yet"-- Provided by publisher.
