The May Queen
Copyright © 2008 by Michelle Tocher
Glamorous, mysterious and secretive, May Galloway has been shut out from the family she loves. She’s been tagged as the flit-about, unable to settle and ground herself. But what mischief has turned a woman as beautiful as the “Queen of the May” into a kind of living ghost?
The May Queen takes us into the shadows of the Underwood family, to the conflict between sisters, to secret romance, and crimes that can’t be named. Written in vivid, cinematic style, the story gives us a new appreciation for the depths of fairy tales, and the way in which they are rooted in the predicaments of real life.
