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.

Anne Rivers Siddons makes a best-selling writing career out of her uncanny ability to understand how women truly relate to the world around them. A best-seller, Low Country is remarkable in its story of a woman who defies her Southern roots to stand up for what she believes in. Caroline "Caro" Venable has spent her married life entertaining her husband’s friends and being a true Southern hostess. She constantly plays this role to Clay’s business friends who want a share in his land-development empire. But when Caro learns that her only retreat, a small, wild, low country island will be a sacrifice to Clay’s suddenly failing company, she realizes she must look upon her traditional marriage differently and fight for what she wants.

Editorial Reviews

"A skillful storyteller. . . . Siddons does what she does best and delivers king-sized conflict in hypnotic surroundings." (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
