Charleston, A Novel by Margaret Bradham Thornton
No answer yet
Charleston, A Novel, by Margaret Thornton. I don’t think I have read a novel where a city is such a character - and what a city it is - a city filled with stately homes, gossip, and entangled lives and set against a sultry and untamed backdrop. Thornton writes in a way that makes the reader feel the slow seduction of the place, the ghosts who haunt the houses and the beauty of the landscape. When I finished the novel I felt I had taken a trip to Charleston and met the special characters, none more charming than Henry, who does his best to get Eliza back. It is a lovely story written beautifully and I highly recommend it.
