My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another lovely story from Sarah Addison Allen!
Lisette: a mute French woman who senses others' emotions "... slipped straight to her as if through mouse holes..."
A woman named Bulahdeen, whose grandmother used to say that old hands make the best food.
A lake described as "a dense round plop of gray-green water surrounded by trees with Spanish moss hanging from their limbs, like the long hair of ladies dipping their heads to sip from the lake."
All this, plus redemption, courage, love charms, food, and a talking alligator...
