Summer in the SouthLarge Print - 2011
After a personal tragedy, Chicago writer Ava Dabrowski quits her job to spend the summer in Woodburn, Tennessee, at the invitation of her old college friend Will Fraser and his two great-aunts. Her charming hosts offer Ava a chance to relax and write at their idyllic ancestral estate, Woodburn Hall. But Ava soon learns that ancient feuds and modern rivalries lurk just beneath the estate's placid surface. Fascinated by the family's impressive history -- their imposing house filled with treasures and their mingling with literary lions Fitzgerald, Hemingway and Faulkner -- Ava stumbles onto rumors about the darker side of the family's legacy and discovers a multitude of skeletons in their closets. As Ava struggles to write the story of the Woodburns, she finds herself tangled in the tragic history of a mysterious Southern family whose secrets mirror her own.
