Deep in the Alabama woods sits Primm House, straight out of fairy tales and the heart of a child. Now an adult, Franny Primm looks back, unweaving the threads of a certain summer in this southern coming-of-age tale.

From the boy known as Zorro who roams the area on horseback, to the orphans in the woods and the Catholic hierarchy down the road, Franny recalls a series of characters and events that come together in a mystery—and the haunting answers to it.

Margaret P. Cunningham’s short stories have won several national contests and appeared in magazines and anthologies including eight Chicken Soup for the Soul books. She grew up on her father’s nursery in Mobile, Alabama, where she lives with her husband, Tom. She enjoys writing, reading, gardening and “beaching it” with her friends and family.
