And then comes Lulu Foxworth, troubled daughter of a truly grand plantation, who has run away from her hectic Charleston debutante season. Where Emily's father sees Lulu as an entrée to society, Emily is threatened and mystified.

I really enjoyed this story especially after reading it twice. I ordered it on CD from this site not realizing (until I started listening)that I had read the book previously. I will be reading more from Anne Rivers Siddons.
