Caro Venable must decide whether to conserve or develop inherited marshlands. What will it mean for her marriage if she denies her husband's ambition to turn the land into a residential community? What will it mean for her well-being if Caro doesn't maintain the island's historical integrity?

by Anne Rivers Siddons. 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.

by Anne Rivers Siddons. 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.

Listen online to Low Country - Caroline Venable has everything her Southern heritage promised: money, prestige, a rich husband. But most important to her, his plans will mean the devastation of a band of wild ponies that roam freely across the island. Spurred to action and inspired with new purpose, Caro must confront the life she has been leading and reach deep within herself to save this special place out of her past and, ultimately, make a meaningful life for herself.

I looked at her in the harsh fluorescent light and felt an actual pain in my heart. I also felt a sharp, cold pang of anger at her husband and Clay and the com- pany. Poor, bereft, sodden, frightened little soul. I remember that, I said. It’s awful, isn’t it? But it stops.

A great book! Published by Thriftbooks. I personally thought it was one of Anne Rivers Siddons' best books ever. I agree with the readers that say that her genre is somewhat predictable, but that is what makes her books almost comforting. I, for one, like happy endings.

Book by ANNE RIVERS SIDDONS
  • Siddons' characters are so full of emotion, and they draw from her readers feelings that probably seldom see light. She expresses those emotions in words that, for most people, are difficult to find. Reading her books is cathartic and educational.

  • Awesome ... awesome. Anne Rivers Siddons's writings are so accurately descriptive that you are easily transported and totally immersed in the story. Being a fan if the Low Country - reading this characterization was like reliving childhood in a dream destination ... immersed in nature, beauty, love, loss and rebirth A true depiction of the beauty of life growing up in the low country in all it's aspects. Certainly leaves you wanting more!

  • I titled my review, "A Great Summer Read..." because I thought that was what it would be when I began the book. Something wispy and beachy and all about the South Carolina (SC) low country. It wound up being so much more. While not a great work of literature in the classic sense - this is very fine writing indeed. At times the book takes on a sort of eternal mythology to it as the protagonist, Caro Venable, comes to terms with grief in her life, her losses, her marriage and more. It is about this woman discovering herself for perhaps the first time...learning to breathe from the depths of her soul. The plot focuses on a community in SC that her husband has developed/built and her responsibilities as the builder's wife to welcome all new residents with proper, ladylike SC charm despite her own inner grief and misery. She feels out of place all the time and seeks refuge at a house/shack that her deceased grandfather left to her on a far distant tip of the island where life is VERY different from the snobbery of the nouveau riche she mothers further inland. In so many ways the shack and the tip of the island represent a kind of primeval part of the soul lost to all of us; an older, harder yet purer way of life where people and community and nature are most important above all things. I found this to be one of the most moving and beautiful books I have read. Yes there are parts I could dig and pick at such as the fate of Luis Cassels: a worker for Caro's husband. Still I would very much recommend this book.

  • Low Country was one of the best of Siddons that I've read. Although a few reviews refer to a pat formula for some of these books, I see it less as a formla and more a framework. Cora and her husband represent so many of us who are in our baby boomer years, who have moved off course not deliberately, but rather by degrees. Cora went to Converse College, and would have been about two years behind me -- so there is a lot about this character I believe I understand. For Southern women of a certain age and type, liberalism, feminism, multiculturalism and advocacy come hard - they are hard-developed, hard-fought, and hard-maintained. But that part of Cora that came hard is restored and strengthened from facing the problems and unethical behavior of the potential development of her island. She deals with life in a haphazard, sometimes alcoholic way. But when put up against the wall, she comes out with ethical choices. And her decisions, I believe, influence her husband to do the right thing.

  • Superb writing.

  • Loved this book! It was one of those books you don't want to put down. You can hardly wait to get back to it to see what has happened to the characters. Anne Rivers Siddons never fails to keep me interested and into her characters.

  • I cannot put her books down. Excellent writer. Very descriptive. Makes Nicholas read like Dick and Jane.

  • I quit reading the book about one-third of the way through even though I had finally reached the obvious turning point. It was slow, depressed and having a very hard time finding a focus. Very disappointing,
