Light in the Company of Women was greeted with enthusiastic reviews when it was published in hardcover last year. This magnificent family saga captured the hearts of critics all across the country.

Glittering with turn-of-the-century romance and history, Light in the Company of Women is the story of Sarsfield Middleton and his Raysburg, West Virginia, family. Sarsfield is a man searching for himself and his place in a turbulent, quickly changing society. Torn as he is between the genteel world women and the brutal, competitive male arena, the established "old" society and the nouveau riche, Sarsfield's choices in life and love are irrevocably divided between the comfortingly familiar and dangerously exciting.

Elegantly written and studded w authentic period detail, Light in Company of Women is the perfect corn nation of style and substance.
