FAIR BAY by Eleanor Frances Lattimore
Kirkus Star


Email this review


Trudy's summer at her aunt's home on the coast of South Carolina is filled with easy pleasant hours. But it becomes more than just an ordinary summer as Trudy feels a growing compulsion to return to the lost colony of Fair Bay, a fashionable resort, destroyed years ago in a storm. Trudy's recapitulation of the last afternoon of the island is suffused with a gentle mystery, as haunting and poignant as the melody of an old fashioned music box. Eleanor Frances Lattimore skillfully maintains the balance between the probable and fantastic in this delicate story of a child's summer dream.
