Eden Author:Julie Ellis Against a background of the lush and legendary land that was the Old South unfolds a powerful novel of tempestuous affairs and evil passions. A sweeping novel of lust and love in the Old South. Copyright 1975.
This book is about greed, lust, and sex. Those three themes consume the characters's existences. It shows how those born to wealth sometimes abuse their privileged positions and lose all they own. Although these things make most other books interesting, they don't work too well in this book. First, I know that this book is not exactly literature, but as an entertainment piece the three themes above do not enlighten me about the characters until the middle of the book, and by then, I just don't care.
