Publisher's Summary

Gillon - red-haired, intelligent, vulnerable - comes to London to escape from the demands of her wealthy, conventional, socially superior family in Charleston, South Carolina. An art historian, she has a chance meeting with Tilly, whose long-term boyfriend, Henry, is a wildlife photographer who is finding it hard to commit. Before long Gillon has moved into their flat, replacing Henry's old mate William, William's on-off-girlfriend Susie, and a lots of mess and disorganisation.

Things are changing, and Tilly finds it difficult to accept that her dreams of settling down with Henry are receding further into the distance, especially when Henry announces that he is going to South Carolina to photograph the abundant wildlife of the area. There, Henry is wholly seduced by the charms of Charleston, by Gillon's family, and by the old patrician way of life which presents itself. The rules seem to be changing, the time passing by, and the future is becoming less and less certain.

    "Don't bother with this one..."

    There are too many characters and the writer never develops the story of any of them deeply enough that you feel you know them. The southerners are portrayed as flakey and superficial and the british characters are annoying and cold. The narrater incorrectly pronounced "Edisto", an island in South Carolina, several times. The story skips around and leaves you wondering if you missed parts of it. The best thing about this book is Audible's description.
