Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sweetgrass is a historic tract of land in South Carolina that has been home to the Blakely family for eight generations. But Sweetgrass—named for the indigenous grass that grows in the area—is in trouble. Taxes are skyrocketing. Bulldozers are leveling the surrounding properties. And the Blakelys could be forced to sell the one thing that continues to hold their disintegrating family together.

In this poignant novel of hope, acceptance and the powerful gift of forgiveness, Mary Alice Monroe paints an intimate portrait of a family that must learn to unravel old patterns and weave together a new future.

Synopsis:

Mama June and Preston Blakely's lifelong dream has been to hold on to the tract of land left from the family's plantation. When it looks as though they might have to sell, the family struggles to keep the land and remain united.
