Gillon Stokes is a girl from the South, but with her lack of convention and her disregard for makeup and the traditions of Southern femininity, she defies stereotype. When Gillon flees Charleston for a summer stint in London, she is befriended by the assured yet insecure Tilly. But when it's time for Gillon to return home, Tilly's boyfriend, Henry, follows her. A photographer, he falls in love with the wildlife of the South Carolina marshes, the Stokes family, and the entire South. And it is through his loving lens that everything is seen afresh and transformed.

I have yet to find one of her books, including the ones she writes under a different name, that isn't a total page-turner. Only issue with this one is she misses a little when trying to write dialogue out of the mouth of American rather than British. It can be a little jarring, but otherwise a good read.
