Griffin's Way Author:Frank Yerby Griffin's Way is Frank Yerby's finest novel in many years. The setting is the South, and the story is concerned with a man who will surely be remembered as one of the master storyteller's most appealing heroes--Paris Griffin. — The Civil War has ended, and Paris Griffin has returned home to Griffin's Way. Paris is young, handsome, master of a g... more »reat Mississippi plantation, husband of a lively and beautiful wife--a fortunate man in every way but one, for he has lost his memory.
No one has succeeded in curing Paris, and even his wife, Laurie, has turned from him to embark on an affair with a man whose family have been traditional enemies of the Griffins. In a desperate attempt to bring Paris back to health, his brother sends North for a nurse, Candace Trevor, in the hope that she will be able to save him.
Griffin's Wat has a cast of characters as varied and exciting as Frank Yerby has ever created. There are the Cadwallader brothers--Barry, who is Paris's best friend, and Di--whobecomes his worst enemy. There is Bruce Randolph, the Harvard educated Negro who comes to the South to start a school for his people; Ingra Holm, in love with a man she believes she can never have; Hector, Paris's brother who has made a "marriage" and built a mansion that will turn even his friends against him; the hideously brutal Thurstons whose actions bring about the climax of the novel.
Griffin's Way is Frank Yerby at his best--in a story told against the background of a land torn with conflict in the days following the Civil War when the Ku Klux Klan planted fiery crosses on every hill, and terror reigned among men both black and white.
Once again, Mr. yerby has written a superb historical novel filled with the pace and excitement and color his millions of readers expect.« less
