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.

    More psychological than your typical romance

    My perception is that this is a story for a "mature audience". By that evaluation I do NOT mean that it is in any way risqué or improper or overly erotic - quite the opposite. However, it is far more psychological than your typical romance, and it is not in any sense an action story.Thornton obviously knows her locale; her descriptions of the city of Charleston and the surrounding countryside are vivid and evocative. Likewise, she is clearly conversant with local art and the provenance of artworks. Although those who are not interested in the processes of authentication of artworks might find these descriptions tedious, I rather enjoyed them - especially the discussion of Eliza's attempts to verify a pastel portrait, and her subsequent endeavors to develop an exhibition of the work of "Slave Potter Dave".I have complained in the past that I don't always agree with the way some novelists end their stories, and that is true in the case of "Charleston"... 4/5 Trudie Barreras - See all my reviews, May 11, 2014

    Fantastic ... for putting yourself to sleep

    I love old houses and history. I believe good manners and tradition are important. There was a time when I might have found it mildly interesting to read about the idiosyncrasies of the 'old Charleston' accent, and the insider gossip in this limp, dull, pretentious novel. A lot of other people seemed to like it, so maybe I'm just weird, but this book really bored and annoyed me. A few reasons: a) even though I've always wanted to visit Charleston, I don't need a narrated step-by-step tour of the Historic District. b) nothing happens, even when the characters are having a conversation. c) I can't stand the heroine (she rolls out of bed, throws on jeans and a t shirt, and gets complimented by every single person who lays eyes on her.) Her name is Eliza Poinsett, and she is the Ideal Southern Lady. She knows just what to say to every person she comes across. She knows every person she comes across .. IF they are part of the magically charmed circle of Real Charleston Families. Otherwise... 1/5 Jane Hughes - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    This is a wonderful, very well-written book

    This is a wonderful, very well-written book. I don’t typically gravitate toward romance novels, but this is not your average romance novel. Margaret Bradham Thornton, like all great authors, transports you to another place – you forget that you are reading, as opposed to standing invisible in the corner, observing the characters and story as they steadily unfold.I have always loved the unique city of Charleston and it is refreshing to see the city so carefully and authentically illustrated. But what I most loved about this book is the reflective way the author explored those matters that affect us all so deeply: our sense of identity; the role of our family, past and present; the pull of our past and “home”; regret and self-doubt; security, trust and love. While Charleston and Eliza’s world may be very foreign to your own, you will undoubtedly identify with Eliza and Henry. All the while, you will be turning the pages a little faster... 5/5 rhonda guinazzo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
