Hailed as one of the United States' greatest writers of historical fiction, Eugenia Price presents the stirring events and everyday happenings of Georgia's St. Simons Island. This story of one remarkable woman, Anne Couper Fraser, and her passionate yet intricate marriage to John Fraser, will thrill millions of readers worldwide.
When the Frasers finally return to beautiful St. Simons Island, the one place on earth Anne longs to be, John says that he must follow his father-in-law's example and farm with slave labor is he is to support his family. The Coupers sincerely believe that these people are better off under their benevolence than they would be free. But soon Anne must ask herself if the kindness with which they treat their slaves justifies this Southern institution, and if a sacrifice she has asked of John is too great for their once-perfect marriage to endure.
