Overview

Low Country by Anne Rivers Siddons

Caroline Venable has everything her Southern heritage promised: money, prestige, a powerful husband—and a predictable routine of country-club luncheons, cocktail parties, and dinners hosting her husband's wealthy friends, clients, and associates in his successful land-developing conglomerate.

To escape her stifling routine, Caro drinks a little too much. But her true solace is the Lowcountry island her beloved Granddaddy left her—an oasis of breathtaking beauty that is home to a band of wild ponies. When Caro learns that her husband must develop the island or lose the business, she is devastated. The Lowcountry is her heritage—and what will happen to the ponies whose spirit and freedom have captivated her since childhood?

Saving the island could cost Caroline more than she ever imagined. To succeed, she must confront the part of herself numbed by alcohol and careful avoidance—and shatter long-held ideals about her role in society, her marriage, and ultimately, herself.

This was the very first Anne Rivers Siddons book I read, and one of the most colorful books I have read in a very long time. Caro struggles with right and wrong, trying to hold on to what she has left while trying to work through her pain of the loss of her daughter. She is definitely a lady who defends what she believes is right, even though she does not have the support of those directly around her. The mental picture attained while reading this book is incredible. You feel as though you are right there...living in the area of the marsh tackies. If you never get to visit SC, at least read the book. Thank You, Janice (Aunt) for passing this book onto me after you read it!

I enjoyed this book, it started out slow but was very good for the rest of the book!

While this book is well-written, the plot develops far too slowly. There isn't even a sense of where the plot is going until well over a third of the book is read. Bottpm line, this made for a boring read despite the almost lyrical prose. Stephanie Clanahan

I found this book to be one of great depth and unexpected twists. I was brought though so many emotions through the course of the reading. I loved the author's ability to bring the author into the beaches and marshes of the lowcountry without missing a beat.

Although I enjoyed this book, I found the ending predictable. I am generally more caught off guard by the twists and turns that Siddons is known for - part of her writing genius. However, it is an engaging story and worth reading (or listening to on tape).

I absolutely loved this book. Being a native of South Carolina, I truly appreciated how beautifully Anne Rivers Siddons captured my state. This book is wonderful

Anne Rivers Siddons ranks in the top 2 or 3 of my favorite authors and this particular book hit my heart's center. The low county enchants me by itself; then add Siddons' living characters for perfection.
