Charleston follows the
lives, loves, and shifting fortunes of the Bells—saints and evil-doers mingled
in one unforgettable family—from the American Revolution through the turbulent
antebellum years to the Civil War and the savage defeat of the Confederacy.
Delving into our country’s history as only he can, Jakes paints a powerful
portrait of the Charleston aristocracy who zealously guarded their privilege
and position, harboring dark family secrets that threatened to destroy them
all. Sweeping from the bitterly divided Carolina frontier of the 1770s through
the tragic destruction of the city during the Civil War, Charleston represents
America’s premier storyteller at his very best.
