Girl from the South
Joanna Trollope
Adult Fiction TROLLOPE

Comments  Summary  Contents  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

Summary: When it comes to penetrating and portraying the timeless complexities and dilemmas of everyday life, Joanna Trollope has no equal. In Girl from the South she displays her signature nuance, style, and warmth in a story of the boundaries between men and women, England and America, and what happens when we test the limits of family, friendship, and love. Gillon Stokes is a girl from the South, but with her lack of convention and her disregard for makeup and the traditions of Southern femininity, she defies stereotype. When Gillon flees Charleston for a summer stint in London, she is befriended by the assured yet insecure Tilly. But when it's time for Gillon to return home, Tilly's boyfriend, Henry, follows her. A photographer, he falls in love with the wildlife of the South Carolina marshes, the Stokes family, and the entire South. And it is through his loving lens that everything is seen afresh and transformed. Trollope's elegantly provocative novels have made her a bestselling favorite on both sides of the Atlantic. With this intercontinental new novel, tried-and-true fans and new readers alike will delight in Trollope's voyage to America.
