This is an older book club edition, it's a little worn, but definitely worth reading!
Book 2 of the Georgia trilogy.
Great interesting read of the South and their mindsets and customs. I enjoy this type of historical fiction. These are real people with fictionalized thoughts and words, but researched so well.
This book is the sequel to "Bright Captivity", which began the saga of Anne Couper Fraser, her marriage to John Fraser of England, and her years spent in London. This books opens with the return of the Frasers to St. Simons Island. If you are have read other Eugenia Price books, you will be re-acquainted with the McKays of Savannah, the Goulds of St. Simons and others. The Coupers were one of the noble families of the Georgia Coast in the mid-1800's. Anne's life is one of great love and great sorrow.
The third book in the trilogy is "Beauty from Ashes"
This is book two of the Georgia Trilogy.
A sad story but smacks of real life - historical story of love and slavery in St.Simon's Island in Georgia. Graphic descriptions of slave abuse.A good read
This is my favorite author. She didn't write a bad book!
I have loved all of this Lady's books. They were a little too sweet at times for my taste, but the research and historical context made up for it.
You can answer a lot of questions on Jeopardy after reading these.............they teach history while telling a wonderful story.

When the Frasers finally return to beautiful St. Simons Island, the one place on earth Anne longs to be, John says that he must follow his father-in-law's example and farm with slave labor if he is to support his family. The Coupers sincerely believe that these people are better off under their benevolence than they would be free. But soon Anne must ask herself if the kindness with which they treat thir slaves justifies this Southern institution, and if a sacrifice she has asked of John is too great for their once-perfect marriage to endure.
