Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's Christmas time in Beaufort, South Carolina. Josie Tatternall — a military widow turned B&B proprietor — has just witnessed her best friend's narrow brush with death and, as a result, she decides that life is too short to let old grievances stand in the way of family togetherness. This year, she resolves, her three grown daughters — the girls she raised so carefully yet with such mixed results — will come home for the holidays.

Skillfully employing her uncanny ear for Southern sensibility and her own sharp-eyed wit, Lois Battle gives us her most entertaining and emotional novel to date. Family secrets, old misunderstandings, and unspoken loyalties are played out amidst the heightened expectations of a Christmas season that guarantees joy and tears alike.

The upstairs/downstairs comedies of a Southern inn make a perfect backdrop for this portrait of a family in all its tender, touching, and flawed glory — and a love story that comes as suddenly as sunshine after the rain.

Synopsis:

The upstairs/downstairs comedies of a Southern inn make a perfect backdrop for this portrait of a family in all its tender, touching, and flawed glory--and a love story that comes as suddenly as sunshine after the rain. "A sumptuous Southern tale from a 'born storyteller.'"--"The Washington Post".

Synopsis:

A vibrant novel set in postwar America from the New York Times bestselling author of The Florabama Ladies' Auxiliary and Sewing Circle

World War II is over, but for three young Australian women who meet on their way to new lives and new husbands in America, the adventure is just beginning. Sheila, Dawn, and Gaynor will need to reacquaint themselves with the military men they swore to love when peace seemed like a lifetime away. But the world that awaits them is filled with new challenges, and each woman will be forced to summon courage and strength she never knew she had.

Brilliantly capturing an era that continues to enthrall, War Brides will be embraced by fans of historical fiction and the many readers who are rediscovering Lois Battle and her timeless brand of storytelling.
