Life was good for Baby Gin. Growing up in the rural South, she was theapple of her daddy's eye and was coddled and spoiled by a loving housekeeperand an elder brother who thought she could do no wrong. And she was in love.

Baby Gin lived for the summers when sheknew Cary Ellington would come to stay with his grandfather. She had grand designs for marrying him whenshe was all grown up. Of course, shetook for granted that Cary would see things the same way. It never occurred to her that a ten-yearage difference would be of consequence to him.

But we all know what they say about a womanscorned.

The Unicorn Glade is a coming-of-age story of a girl's quest for understanding ofthe world around her, especially when she realizes thatshe can't always get what she wants. Itis a journey of self discovery and self realization, of finding her way out ofdarkness and learning to see beauty in the world even when things do not feel so beautiful.

Written in a style evocative of the South, the book is peopled by a host of quirkycharacters who live in and around the small town of Indianola,Mississippi. The author's smooth,soothing, sometimes rambling prose brings to mind hot summer nights and warmgentle breezes, and will have you reaching for a cool mint julep by the end ofthe first page.

A light-hearted, humorous, andoften irreverent book, it is filled with anecdotes and old Southernexpressions, with a heaping helping of gossip served on the side.
