Samuel, an aging Emerson/Alcott Transcendentalist type, tries again; he founds an all-girls' school with help from his last disciple and his adult daughter Caroline who serves as the point of view for this feminist historical novel. An atmosphere of dread grows as mysterious blood-red birds amass, and Caroline enrolls Eliza--the daughter of Miles Pearson someone from Samuel's past and an Edgar Allan Poe type. (Samuel's first social living experiment failed leaving Caroline an orphan and Pearson her mother's bereaved admirer and a bestselling author of a lightly-veiled gothic novel exposé before his own early death). Eliza starts exhibiting strange behavior which quickly spreads amongst the girls. And the men just know that they have all the right answers and know best. — Dafydd Wood
