Few writers have earned a place in readers' hearts as dear as Eugenie Price. Her novels entice us into a vanished world, peopled by characters who immediacy makes their joy, sorrow, heartbreak, and soaring love something we can share and savor. Eugenia Price chose Savannah, Georgia as one of the most fascinating cities of the South, as the setting of a quartet of novels that follow the fortunes of the city and families that gave it life.

Orphaned Mark Browning was only twenty when he renounced his father's fortune and sailed to Savannah, his mother's birthplace...and the home of two remarkable women. The first is Eliza McQueen Mackay, his mentor's beautiful wife, whom Mark loves with a deep, pure love that can never be spoken. The other is lovely young Caroline Cameron, whose life is blighted by a secret that has tormented her grandparents for half a century--a secret that affects Mark more closely than he imagines. Desiring one woman, loved by another Mark must confront the ghosts of a previous generation, and face the evil smoldering hate, before he can truly call Savannah his home.

I’ve just returned from another time (1812-1825) and place (Savannah, Georgia). This trip was taken without pen and paper at hand; it is rare for me to read without taking notes all along the way. But ... Read full review

About the author (1997)

Eugenia Price, 1916 - 1996 Eugenia Price, born on June 22, 1916, was an American author best known for her historical novels which were set in the American South. Early in Price's writing career, she was a well-known author of many Christian books. While on St. Simons Island, she wandered through Christ Church cemetery where she found the graves of Anson Dodge, his wives Ellen and Anna, and his child. She wanted to take her writing in a different direction and the graves inspired her to write biographies about average people who only impacted those around them. The result was "Beloved Invader," the post Civil War story of the Reverend Anson Dodge. This first book about St. Simons Island, where she spent time in a cottage researching the Island families, created a new genre. She followed with "Lighthouse" and "New Moon Rising," which went back in time from the Civil War. Price used everything that she wrote, such as articles she wrote for Coastal Illustrated, which were collected and published as "At Home on St. Simons," and the diary she kept while working on a novel became "Diary of a Novel." She also wrote the Savannah quartet, with the final novel titled "Stranger in Savannah." It's a love story that takes place during the time that the country was heading towards the Civil War. Her last book, which was finished a few weeks before her death, was "The Waiting Time." On May 28, 1996, Eugenia Price died of congestive heart failure and was laid to rest in the Christ Church Cemetery.
