This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Deborah Smith s is one of the most imaginative and appealing new voices in Southern fiction. In the tradition of Fried Green Tomatoes, the nationally bestselling author offers a deliciously original new novel that will make you laugh one moment and then move you to tears--an irresistible Southern saga that chronicles a love as innocent as a child s and as powerful as that of two star-crossed lovers can be. I planned to be the kind of old Southern lady who talks to her tomato plants and buys sweaters for her cats. I d be deliberately peculiar. I d wear bright red lipstick and tell embarrassing true stories about my family, and people would say, I heard she was always a little funny, if you know what I mean. They wouldn t understand why, and I didn t intend to tell them. At thirty, Claire Maloney knows her life has become a major-league wreck. And she knows why it all started falling apart, too. Because Roan Sullivan was banished from Dunderry, Georgia, twenty years ago, and Claire hasn t heard from him since. She was only ten then, and Roan fifteen, but what happened to the two of them is the stuff of local legend, as vivid and dramatic as anything can be in a small town where people hoard sad stories as carefully as their great-grandmother s china.Back then, Roan Sullivan lived in a trailer amid junked cars and rusted tin cans, while Claire was the willful, pampered young daughter of the town s most respected family. So no one--least of all her parents--understood the bond that tied her to the fierce, motherless boy who had to fight every day for his place in the world. But Roan and Claire didn t choose one another; they belonged together, as involuntarily andpermanently as the soil and the seed from which the foxgloves grew on the side of Dunshinnog Mountain. They were simply a part of the place, and a part of each other.Until the dark afternoon when violence and terror overtook them, and Roan disappeared from Claire s life. Now, twenty years later, Claire is adrift, and the Maloneys are still hoping the past can be buried forever under the rich Southern earth. But Roan Sullivan is about to walk back into their lives.By turns tender and sexy and heartbreaking and exuberant, A Place to Call Home is an unforgettable journey between two hearts. It is a book to read, and reread, and cherish. A Place to Call Home has the magic of great storytelling. An engrossing read with thoroughly engaging characters. The reader s sense is that these two could only belong to one another, and no one else. I also loved the rich detail of family life, especially the uniquely Southern aspects. --Eileen Goudge These characters leap off the pages. A moving story that holds you to the end and has all warmth and tenderness of LaVyrle Spencer at her best. --Iris Johansen, author of the bestselling novel The Ugly Duckling Laughter, wonderment, unrequited love! Meddling old biddies, warring families, lovers reunited. What more could you want? --Rita Mae Brown Clear the decks when you read this book because you re not going to be able to put it aside until you finished the last delicious page. --Janet EvanovichAn Alternate Selection of The Literary Guild

ID: 199580572

New York, New York, U.S.A.: Bantam Books, 1998. First edition. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good/No Jacket as Issued. New York, New York, U.S.A.: Bantam Books, 1998. First edition. Very Good/No Jacket as Issued. I planned to be the kind of old Southern lady who talked to her tomato plants and bought sweaters for her cats. I'd just turned thirty, but I was already sizing up where I'd been and where I was headed. So I knew that when I was old I'd be deliberately peculiar. I'd wear bright red lipstick and tell embarrassing true stories about my family, and people would say, "I heard she was always a little funny, if you know what I mean." · They wouldn't understand why, and I didn't intend to tell them. I thought I'd sit in a rocking chair on the porch of some fake-antebellum nursing home for decrepit journalists, get drunk on bourbon and Coca-Cola, and cry over Roan Sullivan. I was only ten the last time I saw him, and he was fifteen, and twenty years had passed since then, but I'd never forgotten him and knew I never would. "I'd like to believe life turned out well for Roanie," Mama said periodically, and Daddy nodded without meeting her eyes, and they dropped the subject. They felt guilty about the part they'd played in driving Roan away, and they knew I couldn't forgive them for it. He was one of the disappointments between them and me, which was saying a lot, since I'd felt like such a helpless failure when they brought me home from the hospital last spring. My two oldest brothers, Josh and Brady, didn't speak about Roan at all. ISBN 0-553-57813-8 <br/><br/>05-07-16, Bantam Books, 1998
