The River Road Author:Frances Parkinson Keyes "The River Road is a rich portrayal of a once great southern family struggling to keep alive a proud and magnificent tradition. Murder, jealousy, and hate stalk through a crumbling mansion in the heart of the lush bayou country of Louisiana."
What a saga! Good times and bad are depicted for a couple of generations, you come to feel that you know these characters, they could be neighbors or family. I liked this book for giving me a real feeling for what life was like in this era.
