It's an old Anne River Siddons, and a little lengthy, but if you stick with it, it's a good light read.
She was special.
That's what Ruth Yanceys worn out mother told her every day of her life. And Ruth was beautiful, with a fiery splendor that rose above her squalid Georgia mill town roots.
It was those looks, and her imbred belief in a powerful destiny, that led Ruth to the most exquisite mansion in Sparta, Fox's Earth.
Through insinuation, manipulation and an impenetrable evil, she became its mistress for three generations..with masterful precision, she broke her descendants hearts and bled their souls..until another woman, not of her blood, not of her station, attempted to match her madness...
Fantastic story ! Couldn't stop reading this one. A wee bit different for me but loved it. You truly will laugh, cry & get angry. A good read for sure...it's all there. Defintely a great woman's book.
A bit over the top but Siddons remains a wonderful author.
This is an excellent book with a lead character you can't help but despise. Ruth Yancey Fox is pure evil!
Anne Rivers Siddons writes wonderful books for the beach. You can get lost in her stories.
