If only Alice could get rid of her new stepfather, Simon Jester. No one wants to believe that the pieces of his tragic past don't seem to fit-or that he is trying to poison Alice and her older brother. Until the one night her mother comes in to kiss her goodnight and instead whispers a single word..."RUN."
...until I turned the last page, once I'd begun this extraordinarily powerful tale of innocence and evil. When stepchildren Alice and Boone try to warn their mother of her new husband's evil intentions, she refuses the knowledge, her desire for happiness so overwhelming. Their eyes beg her to see what she will not see, and the intransigent Meg won't hear ill of Simon Jester. Until one night, she whispers to her children, "Run".
Once an average, happy family, they are broken apart by a father who abandons all for another woman. Meg is shattered, unlovable, her children left to care for themselves. Simon magically appears, the obvious answer to Meg's despair. In a dramatic, fateful rescue of Meg, as drowning, she flails helplessly about, Simon wins her heart and her hand in marriage. But Simon Jester demands loyalty, from Meg most of all, even at the expense of her children. Then, like the preacher in "Night of the Hunter", Simon shouts with the voice of Wrath and Righteousness, fervent disciple of the Biblical God of the Old Testament.

Sensitive Alice intuits Simon's dangerous flaws and becomes cautious, watchful, aware of Meg's penchant for denial. Boone's God is forgiving, temperate and merciful, allowing Boone to hold all things capable of at least some small amount of goodness, even Simon. But the slow-building tension in the house sends chills down Alice's back as Simon stares malevolently at her and her brother. And Alice can find no real God to answer her prayers.
Poor inept Meg, so unsure of her worth, is terrified of losing Simon and not being loved. Finally pregnant, Meg nurtures a desperate surge of hope, of giving Simon a new son, another family to replace the one he lost so tragically. Slowly the brother and sister are pushed away from their weak mother, as Simon looms, feeding his hatred, overshadowing this small family, bending all to his will. Tragedy fills the air like the static of a fast moving storm. The power of innocence breeds courage, as rage breeds betrayal, desperation and finally a torrent of violence. Amidst the terror, Boone loses his heart to the wild and complicated Persley Snow, and Alice has a glimpse of the passionate attachments of first love.
Hepinstall has reached inside the darkest chambers of the human heart, unleashing the demons as well as the angels. Her metaphors are clean and powerful, a trenchant refusal of palliatives, fearless in the face of truth. Alice, Boone and Persley are cast into a world that contains the extremes of good and evil, each in constant battle. Their strength is ultimately drawn from the hubris of youth: that they could even lose such a contest gives them the courage to fight for their lives.
Tho a YA novel, I enjoyed the suspense and ironies in this semi humorous southern story!This is a tale of faith for Boone and his 13year old sister who is narrator. Reminds me of modern Carson McCuller novella,but this is one for adults as well!There is poisoning,mistaken pregnancy, and escape of Persely from asylum bent on finishing off her evil father!enlightening end enjoyable!
Even though I read this book some time ago, I would like to say something about it. This was my first book by this writer and by the title I did not know what to expect. Let me say, I was pleasantly surprised by it and will read others by this author. If anyone has ever read BASTARD OUT OF CAROLINA, TO KILL A MOCKING BIRD AND HUCK FINN well, put them together and this gave me some of the same feelings. I really enjoyed it.
I just love, love, love this book and I might not be able to explain it. There is something so true and sinister about the family; something that definitely struck a chord in my world. Maybe, as I've said before, it helps to read about people who have a little bit more screwed up in their lives than I do!! .....just a little bit more. :) This is one of my all time favorite books.
I Loved this book, enough to read a second time. It Keeps you interested I would highly recommend this book
Kathy Hepinstall is a very gifted writer, and an even better storyteller. This book will not disappoint in any way. It's like a fine wine so take your time and enjoy every word.

In my top 2 books of all time.
What a terrific book about a family that has gone wrong. 11 year old Alice telling the story about her mom, older brother and horrible stepfather who is out to get his stepkids since they "arent his kids." Their mom, who they call Meg, doesnt believe them until the day comes where she tells them to "RUN."
The drama kept me guessing all the way through and the plot twists and turns until the last page. I highly recommend this book; now I want to read her first!
This is a really interesting thriller that will keep your attention all the way through! There are surprises throughout and you will just think you might have figured it out, when - WHAM - you get caught unexpectedly. This seems to be a book especially written for teens, but it is just as appealing to adults too! I didn't want to put it down & it turned out to be a very fast read. I really enjoyed it and it makes you realize that people can be evil and not appear to be at all. You become attached to the characters and keep hoping that the plot will become more favorable for them, but it doesn't! This is an easy read that you should definitely put on your "To Read List" and enjoy ! ! !
