Gillon - red-haired, intelligent, vulnerable - comes to London to escape from the demands of her wealthy, conventional, socially superior family in Charleston, South Carolina. An art historian, she has a chance meeting with Tilly, whose long-term boyfriend, Henry, is a wildlife photographer who is finding it hard to commit. Before long Gillon has moved into their flat, replacing Henry's old mate William, William's on-off-girlfriend Susie, and a lots of mess and disorganisation.

Things are changing, and Tilly finds it difficult to accept that her dreams of settling down with Henry are receding further into the distance, especially when Henry announces that he is going to South Carolina to photograph the abundant wildlife of the area. There, Henry is wholly seduced by the charms of Charleston, by Gillon's family, and by the old patrician way of life which presents itself. The rules seem to be changing, the time passing by, and the future is becoming less and less certain.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chenice | 5/11/2011

    " Although the description of the South was fantastic, the writing was awful. Not the best novel I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dona | 5/2/2011

    " i savoured every page of this book-- gotta read more of hers--slow pace, interesting characters, full of surprising insights
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 4/3/2011

    " I really wish I had visited Charleston and the Carolina's when I was in the States. I will need to come back. Joanna Trollope is good at telling stories about relationships, in this book she does not let her self down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jacqui | 1/8/2011

    " I don't remember loving it, but I think the author writes well, otherwise I wouldn't have finished it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Noelene | 10/7/2010

    " Story of complicated relationships between, in and around, two couples. Apart from the fact that some of the writing was just brilliant in places and of the usual Trollope simplicity and standard, I didn't feel the same absorption with the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judy | 10/3/2010

    " The many characters in this book go round and round and chase their tail. The jacket cover says it's about "family" but it's more about "self". I finished it... but more because I was waiting for someone to do something than that I liked it. Not up to JT's usual quality. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 5/26/2010

    " I kept falling asleep and losing track of the characters. Henry and William seemed like the same person. I do like the name Tilly though- it would be a cute dog name "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherrey | 5/18/2010

    " My first and only disappointment from Joanna Trollope. Transatlantic storytelling is difficult at best, and I'm not sure Trollope was fully able to capture the charms of Charleston or its people well enough to pull this one off. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 5/19/2009

    " Set in Charlston, South Carolina, and London, England, this book was a lot like my first H. Trollope, Marrying the Mistress, in that there wasn't just one protagonist, but many, whose fates are intertwined and jarred from stagnation by the breakup of one couple. A well-written page-turner. "
