Caroline Aubrey Gentry Has Everything Her Southern Heritage promised: money, prestige, a rich husband. If she drinks a little too much and her 20-year marriage to successful land developer Clay seems a little empty, well, she's doing what she was born to do: be the chatelaine of a magnificent home and a hostess to her husband's wealthy friends and perspective clients.
Her numbing routine of country-club luncheons, cocktail parties, and increasing isolation is interrupted, however, when Caroline finds out that her tycoon husband plans to build a resort on a beautiful untouched island in South Carolina's low country. The island is a quiet haven, rich in low country history and meaningful memories from Caroline's youth. But most important to Caroline, his plans will mean the devastation of a band of wild ponies that roam freely across the island. Spurred to action and inspired with new purpose, Caroline must confront the life she has been leading and reach deep within herself to save this special place out of her past, and ultimately, make a meaningful life for herself.
Siddons at her best, Low Country is a story of personal renewal and transformation, when one woman's proper Old South upbringing collides with the New South's runaway prosperity.
