Publisher's Summary

Sweetgrass is a historic tract of land in South Carolina that has been home to the Blakely family for eight generations. But Sweetgrass — named for the indigenous grass that grows in the area — is in trouble. Taxes are skyrocketing. Bulldozers are leveling the surrounding properties. And the Blakelys could be forced to sell the one thing that continues to hold their disintegrating family together.

In this poignant novel of hope, acceptance and the powerful gift of forgiveness, Mary Alice Monroe paints an intimate portrait of a family that must learn to unravel old patterns and weave together a new future.

What the Critics Say

“The lush details in this prodigal-son tale bring the low-country setting to life.… Readers who enjoy such fine Southern voices as Pat Conroy will add the talented Monroe to their list of favorites.” (Booklist)

    "Sweetgrass Review"

    Sweetgrass captivated me with the warm and wise story that touches on the meaning of life with a heartfelt feeling that made me wish it would not end. Fantastic atmosphere and prompts to re-discover the beauty in my own life.

    "All About Family"

    Sweet grass is a warm and captivating story filled with the highs and lows of family. I enjoyed the events and situations that led each family member to put family and traditions first. It also illustrated the pit fall of bitterness and selfish desires.
