"In a small Alabama town in Zion County, life is finally looking up for twenty-year-old Donnette Sullivan. Having just inherited her aunt's old house and beauty shop, she's taken over the business, and her husband Tim, recently crippled in an accident, is beginning to cope not just with his disabilities but also with the loss of his dreams. Once a promising artist who gave up art for sports, Tim paints a sign for Donnette's shop, Making Waves. The raising of the sign causes ripples through the town. The lives of Donnette and tim are about to be changed. The catalyst for change is the return of Taylor Dupree. The exotic Taylor-half Cajun and a grandson of the wealthy Clark family-was raised in Zion by a doting aunt after he was deserted by his mother. Taylor left two years ago for Tulane and as been unable to return, due to his part in the accident that injured Tim, his closest friend. Though the rebellious black-sheep Taylor was unharmed, Tim, the popular and highly recruited star quarterback of the Clarksville Blue Devils, lost his chance for a sure football scholarship and a better life. It's Taylor's love for his elderly surrogate mother Aunt Della that brings him back, a love soon to be put to the ultimate test. When a shocking secret hidden for two years, the secret behind Tim and Taylor's accident, is uncovered by Donnette, Taylor is forced to sacrifice either his allegiance to Aunt Della or his friendship with Tim. In a sequence of events-sometimes funny, sometimes tragic-leading up the surprise denouement, the lives of others are unavoidably affected. This story is also about the patriarch of the Clarks, Harris (who rules his family as he does Clarksville), and his sisters Della and Francis Martha, one in a fight against going to a nursing home and the other a slow-witted spinster. It's also about Sonny Clark, classic good-ole-boy out to get his cousin Taylor; and his new bride Ellis, a foot-washing primitive Baptist who sets her cap for a Clark heir and captures the worthless Sonny."BOOK JACK

Carolina writers at home ( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 22 libraries worldwide
From Beaufort to Boone and a dozen places in between, Carolina Writers at Home is a rich collection of true stories showcasing the houses where some of the most notable contemporary Southern authors--including Jill McCorkle, Nikky Finney, Allan Gurganus, Clyde Edgerton, and Michael Parker have forged their writing lives. The homes in these essays range from the classic bungalow and mid-century modern ranch house to wilder locales: a church, a trailer, and a sparsely-inhabited barrier island. Alongside the essays, Rob McDonald's evocative photographs capture the writers in their habitat, preserving their distinct personalities as well as the particular character of the house and place they inhabit. From the simple pleasures of Cassandra King's writing room, to the hilarious and sometimes terrifying intrusions of curious wildlife in George Singleton's realm, this unique anthology invites the reader to step inside some of the South's best loved writers' private worlds and see whant makes their houses truly their own. It shows how collections of objects can transform a simple house into Daniel Wallace's ark or Josephine Humphreys' museum, creating a sheltering place for a creative mind at work. [This book] pays homage to those who have taken inspiration form the beauty and singularity of the Carolina landscape and turned it into the written word. -- Front jacket flap
