Storyline

Silver spoon Boston lawyer Declan Fitzpatrick fell in instant love with a Louisiana bayou 'haunted' estate when he drove by with college friends. Now he learns it's on sale and rushes to the rather destitute owner, old Odette Simone. She lives in a cabin nearby and makes sure he gets to meet her orphaned granddaughter, headstrong restaurateur Lena. The youngsters sort of fall in love, but the estate's bloody slavery days past, including fratricide and infanticide, comes to weigh heavily, even in ghostly fashions. Written by KGF Vissers

Don't bother...
31 March 2009 | by seaelenSee all my reviews

To anyone who read the book, you will not like this movie...to those who saw the movie without reading the book will not want to read it!! The characters were not well developed, Declan's background was limited to one past relationship & there was hardly anything about his family up north. Lina's character was limited as well and didn't show how she achieved in her life from such difficulties. The relationship between Declan & Lina did not seem genuine or believable.

Faye Dunaway was spectacular as always, but sadly not used to her full potential.

I'm sorry I watched it since I read the book. I'm not sure if I would have liked it any better if I hadn't read it.
