An easy to read story. I found that I cared about what happened to these characters, which is a great thing!!
I love all of Anne Rivers Siddons' books about the south, especially in the low country. This is another wonderful, engrossing special story.
Wow! This is a fabulous story, full of larger-than-life characters and wonderful settings.
Caroline Venable is the quintessential Southern Belle. Her southern heritage has also afforded her money, prestige, a powerful husband - and a predictable routine of country club luncheons, cocktail parties and dinners hosting her husband's wealthy friends, clients and associates in his successful land-developing conglomerate.
To escape her stifling routine, Caro drinks a little too much. But her true solace is found in Peacock's Island - the Lowcountry island her beloved Grandaddy left her - an oasis of breathtaking beauty that is home to a herd of wild ponies. When Caro learns that her husband must develop the island or lose his business, she is devastated. Peacock's Island and the Lowcountry is Caro's heritage - and what will happen to the ponies whose wild spirit and freedom have captivated her since childhood?
Saving the island could cost Caroline more than she ever imagined. To succeed, she must confront the part of herself numbed by alcohol and careful avoidance - and shatter long-held ideals about her role in society, her marriage, and ultimately, herself.
I have to say that while I did enjoy reading this book, it was not really as captivating as I hoped that it might be for me. I thought that the plot was a little too contrived for my liking. I still enjoyed this book enough to give it an A!
Compelling story telling about a southern heroine.
Low Country is an emotional struggle for Caro Venable between loyalty to her husband and his business and preserving the beautiful Low Country island which is part of her heritage.
A woman saves an island that is part of her heritage.A good read.
Nice little tale of the South Carolina low country.
A southern tale which is Siddons trademark.
Another terrific book by a great author.
