Publisher's Summary

This is a story of a Charleston family and the courage, love, and passion that bind them to each other and their vibrant South Carolina city. Follow this extraordinary family from the final years of the Civil War through Reconstruction to the beginnings of the ragtime era.

At the story's center is Elizabeth Tradd, who as a child witnesses the horror of war, as a young girl learns the worst that men can do, and as a woman discovers the breathtaking passion that comes to but a lucky few.

Best-selling novelist Alexandra Ripley captures an extraordinary family history of courage, commitment, and unassailable love in this unforgettable novel.
