Author(s): SIDDONS ANNE RIVERS
Headstrong, exuberant, and independent, Lucy Bondurant is a devastating beauty who will never become the demure Southern lady her mother and society demand. Sheppard Gibbs Bondurant III, Lucy's older cousin, is too shy and bookish to become the classically suave and gregarious Southern gentleman his family expects. Growing up together in a sprawling home on Atlanta's "Peachtree Road", these two will be united by fierce love and hate, and by rebellion against the narrow aristocratic society into which they were born. Anne Rivers Siddons' classic novel vividly brings to life their mesmerizing, unforgettable story-- set against the dramatic changing landscape of Atlanta, a sleepy city destined for greatness.
