Savananah was selectd by the Literary Guild and also appeared on the New York Times Bestseller List which said," Reading Eugenia Price ... is rather like sinkig into a large. old-fashioned armchair." The Savannah News-Press says, " A good, strong story... the Savannah of th early 19th century comes so sharply into focuc that I felt I actually have lived here during that time!" "Her finest story... impressive, states the Augusta Chronical. And author Pric e herself says that. "Savannah was her favorite endeavor to date" at the time(1983). This is number one in the "Savannah Quartette".

Few writers have earned a place in readers' hearts as dear as Eugenie Price. Her novels entice us into a vanished world, peopled by characters who immediacy makes their joy, sorrow, heartbreak, and soaring love something we can share and savor. Eugenia Price chose Savannah, Georgia as one of the most fascinating cities of the South, as the setting of a quartet of novels that follow the fortunes of the city and families that gave it life.

Orphaned Mark Browning was only twenty when he renounced his father's fortune and sailed to Savannah, his mother's birthplace...and the home of two remarkable women. The first is Eliza McQueen Mackay, his mentor's beautiful wife, whom Mark loves with a deep, pure love that can never be spoken. The other is lovely young Caroline Cameron, whose life is blighted by a secret that has tormented her grandparents for half a century--a secret that affects Mark more closely than he imagines. Desiring one woman, loved by another Mark must confront the ghosts of a previous generation, and face the evil smoldering hate, before he can truly call Savannah his home.
