Sylvie Davies is a ballerina who can't dance. A broken leg ended her career, but what broke her heart was her father's death, and what's breaking her spirit is her mother's remarriage. Still reeling Sylvie is shipped off to stay with relatives in the back of beyond. Or so she thinks, in fact she ends up in a town rich with her family's history. More unnerving, though, are the two guys she can't stop thinking about.
Shawn Maddox, the resident golden boy, is the expected choice. But handsome and mysterious Rhys has a hold on her that she doesn't quite understand.
Then Sylvie starts seeing things - a girl by the lake and a man with dark unseeing eyes peering in through the window. Sylvie's lost nearly everything - is she starting to lose her mind as well? However, the family home in Alabama is almost a character in it's own right with its history and ghostly happenings. Bang on trend for the current teenage market. The Splendour Falls is a hauntingly, beautiful, love story with a twist!

But they were unique and original when first recorded. Just like our man, Tennyson. Unlike many Victorian poets i. Some of his fellow Victorian poets, like Robert Browning and Gerard Manly Hopkins, alas, didn't get appreciated properly until much later. But Tennyson's poems were popular from the get-go, for a bunch of reasons: he addressed issues that were politically relevant during his time period just like the Beatles did in the s , he knew how to write a good hook again, the Beatles might have taken a lesson from him on this , and, oh right, he was a genius when it came to writing musical, lyrical-sounding poems.

Even Queen Victoria liked him—his long, sad poem, In Memoriam , which is about the death of his best friend, was said to be Queen Victoria's best comfort after her husband, Prince Albert, died! She rewarded him by making him the Poet Laureate from until his death in , and by granting him the title of "baron" in the English aristocracy that's where the "Lord" in his name comes from—it's not his middle name, but his title. It's a song-like poem in which a speaker hears a bugle echo around a beautiful valley around sunset.
It's actually sometimes called "The Bugle Song" because it sounds so musical. It's one of Tennyson's best-known poems, but what isn't widely known is that it was originally published as part of a much longer poem called The Princess. The Princess is about whether or not women should be allowed to go to college, which was one of the hot-button issues of Tennyson's day. Nowadays, most people don't bother with reading all of The Princess although you should—check for the link to the full text in the " Best of the Web " section!
