Early Autumn (Hardcover)
In the fictional town of Durham, the Pentlands are a proud and wealthy family with a rich history dating back to the founding colony of Massachusetts Bay. Everything is how it should be with John, the elder patriarch; his son Anson and his wife Olivia; and their children, Jack and Sybil, carrying on in the way that upper-class society families do.
But the world is changing...
Old money is moving out and dying off. New money is moving in. The "old ways," of which the Pentlands are accustomed are becoming a thing of the past. In the midst of it all, Olivia Pentland is feeling increasingly trapped by her mundane life and loveless marriage. With Sybil and a host of other familiar faces returning to Durham for the fall, the routine life of the Pentland's is thrown off kilter by internal scandal, familial secrets, and a newcomer who vies for Olivia's attention. Pushed to the limit by these trials and eventual tragedy, the Pentland family is faced with a choice to either break free from the mold of old aristocracy or attempt to move stiflingly through it.
Professionally typeset with a beautifully designed cover, this edition of Early Autumn is a meticulously crafted classic, reimagined for modern readers.
