A girl plunges to her death on the campus of a private academy in upstate New York, and this isn’t the first time there’s been a mysterious death at the school. Meg Rosenthal and her daughter Sally arrive at the school shortly before the second death occurs. Meg and Sally moved to Arcadia Falls when Meg accepts a teaching position at Arcadia Academy. It’s going to be a fresh start for them after Meg’s husband and Sally’s father dies. They soon discover that the school is shrouded in mystery. Besides her teaching position, Meg has come to Arcadia to finish her dissertation on the school’s founders. During her research, Meg discovers that the founders, Vera and Lily, both had many secrets. The past quickly catches up to the future, and they are soon intertwined.
I enjoyed this book. Goodman is always very descriptive, and makes you feel as if you’re a part of the action. The book kept me guessing, and wasn’t predictable or easy to figure out.
