In the Deep South appearances are not a luxury but a necessity. No family finds that more true than the Foxworths of Larkspur, a quaint but greedy Mississippi town. In that community or anywhere else for that matter, the life of handsome young Sher Foxworth would seem an enviable American dream: high school star quarterback and valedictorian; successful plastic surgeon for a father; beautiful, supportive mother; rich grandparents. But then a single death at the hands of his father rips the town apart, throwing the life of Sher Foxworth and his family into a downward spiral, a corkscrew that entangles more devastation and turmoil as Sher himself lands in jail. It is that tangle with a female police officer which derails his own life from that of town hero into a journey he never intended - far from his plans for medical school. While in Points of Origin readers will sample the return of endearing and despicable characters made popular in North's 2005 debut novel, House Call, they will become immersed in the tumultuous lives of a different set of players: the colorful inhabitants of Larkspur - a new mix of personalities and egos that wraps the lover of fiction into the livid world of southern intrigue.
