Charleston, A Novel

Creator: Margaret Bradham Thornton | Fiction - 2014-07-29

Charleston is an evocative, melancholy novel about one woman’s love—for both a man and an unforgettable city.

Publisher: Harper Collins

About this book
A gifted writer makes her fiction debut with this lyrical and haunting story of missed chances and enduring love, set against the backdrop of high society Charleston, which probes the eternal question: can we ever truly go home again?When Eliza Poinsett left the elegant world of Charleston for college, she never expected it would take her ten years to return. Now almost a decade later, she is an art historian in London with a charming Etonian boyfriend who adores her. But the past catches up with her when she runs into Henry, her childhood love, at a wedding in the English countryside.Already unnerved by the encounter, Eliza’s carefully guarded equilibrium is shattered when she meets Henry again in Charleston, where she’s come for her stepsister’s debut. Set against a backdrop of stately homes, the seductive Lowcountry landscape, and the entangled lives of families who trace their ancestors back for generations, Eliza has to decide if she is willing to risk everything for which she has worked so hard to be with the only man she has ever truly loved.Charleston is an evocative, melancholy novel about one woman’s love—for both a man and an unforgettable city. Emotionally resonant, beguiling in its atmosphere, it illuminates the elusive notion of home, and explores whether we can we truly ever go back to the place—and the people—that indelibly shaped us.

    5/5 dave - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Charleston Receipts (Plastic Comb) Great book with tons of interesting "receipts". Not sure why they call it that. I read an article about this and how hard they are to find.... and went on Amazon and had a few dozen to pick from. I wanted an older original rather than a reprint. Some great stuff in here, some wacky, old time stuff. If you need to cook a turtle, squirrel or rabbit, you are set. Love the wedding cake, 20 pounds each flour Sugar butter, but no directions... is it some kind of 70 year old private joke I missed the punch line to?

    The Bible of Genteel Southern Cooking

    Charleston Receipts remains the stuff of legend. In my native South Carolina it has always been the Bible of genteel Southern cooking and a must have for entertaining and gracious living.The recipes in this book provide a link between our modern world, mid 20th century America and our Colonial past. Many of them date back almost two centuries being adapted by each generation to fit their modern needs and conveniences.The Benne Wafer recipes are legendary since they date to the earliest days of the colony of Carolina. The mixture and influence of African culture shines through in this most Charleston of cookies. The recipe is mentioned in Pat Conroy's works on more than one occasion. Likewise, the recipe for fudge can also be found referenced in his work "The Lords of Discipline."To cook from Charleston Receipts is to connect with the best of Charleston: it's grace, it's style, it's hospitality, and it's fusion of African and English cultures... 5/5 Amazon Customer (Tucson, AZ USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    4/5 John B. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Charleston Then and Now (Then & Now Thunder Bay) (Hardcover) This is a book for people who are interesting in Charleston history and seeing what those historical places look like now. But really, you'll get more out of the book if you know Charleston well. If you only have a passing interest in Charleston history, this might not be the book for you unless you are specifically a fan of these Then and Now type books.

    Buy it! Best Charleston guidebook for a 2-3 day (or more) trip

    5/5 Michelle (Go 'Dores!) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Very Charleston: A Celebration of History, Culture, and Lowcountry Charm (Hardcover) Fantastic little book. Bought it and a few other Charleston guide books for a 3-day mother-daughter trip but should have only bought this one. Loved it so much that we used Very New Orleans for a trip later in the summer.Even though the pictures and maps are drawn/illustrated, they are accurate enough that everything is recognizable, and the maps of each section are incredibly helpful.We especially loved the garden walk mapped out in the Charleston book. We didn't see it mentioned in any other Charleston books that we purchased, but it was such a gem!Also good to know- the specifics she mentions are the best options. For example, Palmetto Carriage Company was mentioned on the carriage page. We did our own research on the carriage companies and learned that Palmetto consistently gets the best reviews. We saved time on our NOLA trip by just going with the recommendations in the book. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 17, 2014

    Loads of cartoon drawings with some interesting historical "tidbits" - some of which were inaccurate (as we learned-ugh).

    3/5 Carpe Diem - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Very Charleston: A Celebration of History, Culture, and Lowcountry Charm (Hardcover) We thought it was going to be a helpful travel book. It is not. It has loads of cartoon drawings with some interesting historical "tidbits" - some of which were inaccurate (as we learned when we visited various places) which added to the disappointment with this book. Cute book, but definitely not a travel resource. Very happy with seller, however. This rating, in no way, reflects on the seller!

    People will KEEP REACHING for this book if you leave it on the table...

    Hits all the highlights of the city & it's history. Great to browse before any FIRST EVER visit to know what to seek out in a short time there. Has tidbits that even some repeat visitors may not have discovered yet! This book evokes fond memories of past visits & makes a good coffee table book to pick up and browse now and then. It will ENTICE your guests to have a look. IF you have NEVEN BEEN to Charleston ... or MAY NEVER GET THERE... this book will give the ESSENCE of Charleston! And reveal some well kept secrets!What I found amusing is that a FORMER area secret eatery brought about by Hurricane Hugo in 1989... a favorite of locals that has NEVER had a sign to identify its existence... that used to be nearly impossible to find without someone's help... is briefly featured in this book giving the name, address, and phone number! So Garmin it... but don't look for a sign! Park in the sand lot, be prepared to enjoy! You will experience some of the best boiled peanuts, fried grit... 5/5 grantg2 (Southeast USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
