A Lowcountry Wedding by Mary Alice Monroe
A Lowcountry Wedding (Lowcountry Summer) - Mary Alice Monroe

 

The fourth and final (?) book in the Lowcountry Summer Series has lots of heart but there's a lot going on here and circumstances were a bit much for me to believe. While I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and the amazing setting, one of my favorite places in the world, this last offering left me rolling my eyes one too many times. However, the characters are lovely and there's a surprise addition to the Muir family that I never saw coming. I'll miss the girls, Mamaw, and, mostly, the sweet dolphin, Delphine.

 

The Lowcountry Summer series consists of four books. The other books in the series are:

#1 - THE SUMMER GIRLS ( my personal favorite.)

#2 - THE SUMMER WINDS

#3 - THE SUMMER'S END


FYI: As always, Monroe includes delicious southern recipes that were enjoyed at Sea Breeze. Enjoy the gumbo. =)

*Many thanks to my local library, Breaux Bridge Public Library/St. Martin Parish Libraries, for adding this book after my many suggestions.

AFTON VILLA by Genevieve Munson Trimble
Afton Villa: The Birth and Rebirth of a Ninteenth-Century Louisiana Garden (Reading the American Landscape) - Genevieve Munson Trimble

Absolutely stunning! Fascinating history. 

 

"Just to think, I realized, both this tree and the garden had witnessed a great swath of southern history. They had lived through the Civil War, the harsh era of Reconstruction, the death of the Barrows, who had been laid to rest just yards away from the oak itself in the family cemetery. Through the subsequent years, the oak and the garden had endured the days of the Depression, oftentimes neglect, the coming and going of different owners, the impacts of seasonal weather, and, finally, fire itself that demolished completely the great house, reducing it to a pile of ruins, the seeming end of Afton Villa. 

But through it all, the old oak and it's surrounding gardens still stood - a symbol of endurance and a triumph of nature to overcome all disasters that would befall. Wasn't this, I thought with sudden clarity, exactly what had drawn Bud and me here in the first place? It was Afton Villa's miraculous ability to have risen, phoenix like, out of the ashes of tragedy. " - Genevieve Munson Trimble
