Описание: June, 1947. Charleston is poised to celebrate the biggest wedding in high-society history, the joining of two of the oldest families in the city. Except the bride is nowhere to be found... Unlike the rest of the debs she grew up with, Vada Hadley doesn't see marrying Justin McLeod as a blessing--she sees it as a life sentence. So when she finds herself one day away from a wedding she doesn't want, she's left with no choice but to run away from the future her parents have so carefully planned for her. In Round O, South Carolina, Vada finds independence in the unexpected friendships she forms at the boarding house where she stays, and a quiet yet fulfilling courtship with the local diner owner, Frank Darling. For the first time in her life, she finally feels like she's where she's meant to be. But when her dear friend Darby hunts her down, needing help, Vada will have to confront the life she gave up--and decide where her heart truly belongs.

Описание: An unrivalled account of the American Civil War from the Confederate perspective. One of the most compelling personal narratives of the Civil War, "Mary Chesnut's Diary" was written between 1861 and 1865. As the daughter of a wealthy plantation owner and the wife of an aide to the Confederate President, Jefferson Davis, Chesnut was well acquainted with the Confederacy's prominent players and-from the very first shots in Charleston, South Carolina-diligently recorded her impressions of the conflict's most significant moments. One of the most frequently cited memoirs of the war, "Mary Chesnut's Diary" captures the urgency and nuance of the period in an epic rich with commentary on race, status, and power within a nation divided.
