by M.D. Barfield (Author)
"All his life Billy has been groomed to follow his father's family tradition of joining the prestigious Atlanta law firm established by his grandfather. This is not the life he wants, but he has never been strong enough to defy family tradition. Now he is caught between two worlds, the moneyed world of Atlanta and the 'New South,' and the more traditional world of Savannah and the Low Country. As we move through the story, we meet Molly, a teenage temptress. Cindy, who has been emotionally and sexually abused. Cap Green, Billy's maternal grandfather who is a section foreman on the Atlantic Coast Line railroad. His grandmother, who is wise in the ways of herbal healing. Aaron, Billy's best friend from childhood who has just been accepted to medical school and proves in a red neck bar fight that no one calls him a dirty Jew. Sam Crammer, Molly's father who has always adored his daughter and swears the one who has "put the devil in her." Mary Agnes, Molly's mother, who sends the devil straight to hell with a double- barreled shotgun. Johnny Raintree, who makes whiskey, and lives with an everchanging parade of young girls he calls cousins. Linda, the Atlanta girl from the 'right' family Billy is expected to marry. Philip, who if ever a man needed killing, he does. The culture, mores, and ethics of the "new south" contrasted to those of Savannah and the Low Country, a touch of voodoo, and a little of the Gullah culture..."
