Started out slow and hard to follow, but it just got better and better. Dynamite ending.

One of my favorite books of all time. Siddons captures certain aspects of the South so well that you feel like you are right there. The most intriguing thing for me is that the book is written from a male character's point of view, which is rarely done by female authors. Give it a try, you may just fall in love with it, too!

I think this one is Siddons best! I lived in Atlanta for many years, and this one really takes you there.

"The author of such works as Homeplace and heartbreak Hotel establishes herself in the front ranks of Southern writers...While there are hints of Truman Capote & Tennessee Williams (two of my favorite writers); Siddons is her own woman in this asorbing tale." according to Los Angeles Times Book Review. While the Ricmond Times-Dispatch states, "Colored in rich, dark tones... A briliant novel with richly Southern themes of change and lost losve. It pulsates with it's vital portrayal of a Southern city in transition and the universal sadness of love left behind." "Peachtree Road is Siddons' love letter to Atlants," says the Chicago Tribune.

Didn't finish. Just too slow getting off the ground.

I agree it took some time to really get into this book but in the end it was worth it. Like Siddons usual style there are some twists and turns that were unexpected.
