About this book
Charleston: A Historic Walking Tour will help natives and visitors alike appreciate the history and residents of this beautiful city. With its architecture, palm trees, and cobblestone streets, Charleston is one of the South's great cultural destinations. Its ballrooms and benevolent society halls attest to grand periods of opulence and high living. The theater, libraries, museum, and college show an appreciation for culture and sophistication. But don't let the city's beauty hide its turbulent history. The horrors of bombardment and occupation by conquering armies have left their marks. The city has experienced bleak times and disasters, including fires, a devastating earthquake, and hurricanes, not to mention the challenges of Reconstruction. Yet Charleston has survived its darker days, and now may be the city's finest hour. Neighborhoods from Calhoun Street to the Battery are in better condition today than they have ever been before. This book offers three tours to explore the historic downtown: the Meeting Street loop, the Legare Street loop, and the Ansonborough tour. Enjoy the walk, and let the city tell you its story.

    We Are Our Past

    Excellent first work of fiction by Margaret Bradam Thornton that immediately sweeps you into Charleston, South Carolina with it’s deep sense of history, tradition, and old family community. Eliza Poinsett comes home after ten years, and finds that it is as if she hadn’t left. Emotional ties, still pull, and she is quickly wrapped up in the rhythms of her past, which is intricately woven among Charleston’s landscape and history.This is a gentle, reflective novel without sharp dramatic edges. It’s a novel that is just simply enjoyable to pick up and immerse yourself in. Perhaps the most satisfying part is the description of Charleston itself, as a culture that looks back more than forward, and how that plays apart in Eliza’s own search for understanding.Along the way, the author uses a couple predictable plot elements that may disappoint some; but it is the reflective, never strident, events of the story that offers a sort of healing... 5/5 VReviews (USA) - See all my reviews, May 6, 2014

    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

    A Hauntingly Beautiful Novel

    When I first saw the synopsis for Charleston by Margaret Bradham Thornton I knew I wanted to read it. Eliza grew up in Charleston but left for art study in New York and then London when things didn't work for her and her high school sweetheart, Henry. She unexpectedly meets up with Henry at a wedding in London, and he tells her to contact him when she's back in Charleston. Now she's back in Charleston for what should be a short visit. But as she absorbed again into the people and culture of the charming Southern cit,y, Eliza has to decide if one can ever truly go home again, go back to what was.This book is beautiful. The descriptions of the people and places of Charleston were alive. I love Charleston, and, having lived in South Carolina all my life, I've been there many times. Reading this book I could see all the things I love about Charleston, and having things related from Eliza's point of view gave me inside information that I've never known as a tourist. It was... 4/5 L. Courtney "Book Mom" - See all my reviews, May 31, 2014

    Charleston Review, Fodor's

    0 4/5 mjr - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fodor's In Focus Charleston, 1st Edition: with Hilton Head & The Lowcountry (Travel Guide) (Paperback) The best thing that I liked about this book was that it was small enough to carry around. I studied it and highlighted points of interest before the trip and it was easy to reference back to it throughout our visit. I liked the descriptions of items under 'points of interest.' I would have liked a longer list of restaurants, especially the restaurants that were not so expensive. The maps in the book were just ok. I would definitely recommend this book; it was a good value. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 10, 2011
