The Splendor Falls by Rosemary Clement-moore

Standard

Novel Summation:

Can love last beyond the grave?
         Sylvie Davis is a ballerina who can’t dance. A broken leg ended her career, but Sylvie’s pain runs deeper. What broke her heart was her father’s death, and what’s breaking her spirit is her mother’s remarriage-a union that’s only driven an even deeper wedge into their already tenuous relationship.
          Uprooting her from her Manhattan apartment and shipping her to Alabama is her mother’s solution for Sylvie’s unhappiness. Her father’s cousin is restoring a family home in a town rich with her family’s history. And that’s where things start to get shady. As it turns out, her family has a lot more history than Sylvie ever knew. More unnerving, though, are the two guys that she can’t stop thinking about. Shawn Maddox, the resident golden boy, seems to be perfect in every way. But Rhys-a handsome, mysterious foreign guest of her cousin’s-has a hold on her that she doesn’t quite understand.
Then she starts seeing things. Sylvie’s lost nearly everything-is she starting to lose her mind as well

My Thoughts:

I really really enjoyed this book. I love books that deal with history (even if it’s fictional). I hadn’t read a book like that in a long time and it was a wonderful change. The book was interesting and I was constantly trying to decipher what was really going on. All the characters were engaging, interesting and believeable. Unlike many supernatural type books this one offered something different. I feel really bad that I am forgetting all the wonderful things about this book but I did read it awhile ago and haven’t had time to blog. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the supernatural, history and a little romance.

Future Books:

I would really love for there to be more books but as far as I know there isn’t.
