A ballet star loses everything when a car accident ends her career and also results in her miscarriage. Devastated, she retreats to the Georgia coast, where her seclusion does not last long, thanks to the gentle influence of the marsh/river folk--their traditions, music and beliefs. Befriended by a lonely little girl, the former ballerina slowly finds a new life for herself and new values. Mainly female voices, ranging from a light, sophisticated southern accent to a more earthy coastal drawl.
The third of the Sweet Tea story collections treats listeners to a panorama of Southern life, both then and now. Family dramas, comic mishaps, sentimental remembrances and poignant choices illuminate these thirteen stories by new and established authors. There's something for every listener: The gritty realism of a hunt for wild boars, the gentle grieving for a home now filled only with memories, the funny battle between a woman and her recipe for deviled eggs, and much more.
