A dusty box discovered in the wreckage of a North Carolina plantation house contains the remnants of an extraordinary life: an 1870s diary of a young girl, letters, poems, songs, newspaper clippings, court records, marbles, rocks, dolls, and bones. It's through these treasured mementos that we meet the unforgettable heroine of Lee Smith's new novel. Raised in the smoldering ruin of the post- Civil War American South, young Molly Petree, now orphaned, has no intention of wasting time on self-pity. She means to live her life to its fullest. So, when a mysterious benefactor appears out of her father's past to rescue her, she doesn't look back-- until she is an old woman and returns to the farm on Agate Hill. Spanning half a century, "On Agate Hill" tells the story of a woman who risks everything to remain true to herself. It's a novel of obsessive love, unexpected adventures, and luck-- both good and bad. Like a ballad of the Old South, Molly Petree's tale resonates with passion, humor, and drama. Lee Smith, a virtuoso of voice and vision, creates flesh-and-blood characters tempered with equal doses of comedy and tragedy. Like her popular and beloved novels "Oral History" and "Fair and Tender Ladies," "On Agate Hill" is storytelling at its very best. On Agate Hill Smith, Lee, Shannon Ravenel Books

New., XLIBRIS, Chapel Hill, NC: Algonquin Books, (2006.) dj First printing. Fine in near fine dust jacket (crease on front flap of dj.) Historical novel by this award winning Southern writer: "Molly Petree, orphaned by the Civil War, is by her own definition 'a spitfire and a burden. I do not care. My family is a dead family, and this is not my home, for I am a refugee girl.' Raised in the ruins of a once prosperous plantation on Agate Hill in North Carolina, she's a refugee who has no interest in self-pity. . . Spanning half a century, Lee Smith's portrait of a fiery Southern woman recalls the South from Reconstruction to the Roaring Twenties and, in the process, gives us Molly Petree, living and breathing, gripping the reader's arm as the story unfolds." 356 pp., Chapel Hill, NC: Algonquin Books, (2006.) dj
