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.

    The Other Charleston

    4/5 Smyliemom - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Charleston (Mass Market Paperback) Having visited Charleston several times, I was was interested in its history. Several natives of Charleston recommended this book as a glimpse of its past to maybe give me a better understanding of its present. It accomplished that. I was not aware of the involvement during the time of the British, the Revolutionary war, and how that event molded the people and the history of Charleston. The hatred for the North and the pressure from South Carolina to separate from the Union and begin the Civil War was also very evident. Makes you appreciate that Charleston survived, and I better understand the people that have such pride and work so tirelessly to preserve its history. From this book, I can understand that better. I thought the main characters were very real. Hard times make for hard people, and even heroes have flaws. I felt like I had a history lesson along with a very good "read".

    Not Jakes best work, but still worth reading

    3/5 Marlee (NW Penna, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Charleston (Kindle Edition) As an avid John Jakes fan, I was quite disappointed in this book. At first I was about to quit reading it but being a fan, I continued on and was glad I did. Lack of detail in this book created a lot of confusion as to who was who and it was hard to keep many of the characters in mind without having to go back to find out who they were. Although not as well written as most of his books, the story line overall was good and I really enjoyed the ending. I give it a 3 star rating because I can't honestly say I like the way it was written, knowing Jakes can do so much better.

    Best guide for first-time visitors. Comprehensive listings.

    First, the place. Charleston is a national treasure. It is a dynamic, prosperous, historic Southern city that maintains a nearly perfect state of preservation. Without question, the things that have made Charleston into the gem of a town it is today are historic periods of immense wealth followed by periods of poverty. The city was simply too poor to replace and rebuild its old structures until preservationists discovered them in the 1920s. After 100 years of restoration and refinement, Charleston has become so perfectly beautiful that you'd be forgiven for thinking you're on a movie set. Despite this, there's nothing fake about the facade. This is the real deal - a working colonial city within the Caribbean sphere of influence brought forward for all of us to enjoy today.Now, the book.

My life is already changed since getting the book in that I was shamed into throwing away 73 jars of spices of questionable age. Yes, some were duplicates. This is the sort of book you'd love to give for a hostess gift or friend's birthday, but mostly to keep on your most treasured cookbook shelf! Bravissima, Deans! Beautiful book.

    Waking Up in Charleston

    In this final book of the Charleston trilogy, we complete the story of Amanda O'Leary, the young widowed mother we first met in Flirting with Disaster when her church was building her a new home led by the Reverend Caleb Webb.Now a few months later, Amanda and her children are settled into their house and developing friendships with Cord, Dinah, Maggie, Josh, and the whole cast of characters from the first two novels. Amanda has regrets though; her feud with her father is beginning to weigh heavily on her as well as the lack of a father figure for her children. The enterprising and handsome Caleb may be the man able to have Amanda and her father reconcile their differences and he is not opposed to entering into a relationship with Amanda.This book was just ok, a sweet southern romance tale without much spice or much conflict that didn't come from the characters being stubborn. While enjoyable, Amanda, her father, and Caleb drove me a bit crazy with all the... 3/5 P. Newhart (Canada) - See all my reviews, May 9, 2012

    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?)
