Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this novel, the South looms dark and ominous in the background with its Biblical rhetoric, its conflict between a tradition of religious fundamentalism and modern skepticism, racial contrasts and the industrialization of a rural society.

More than a novel of time and place, it is the story of a tormented family submerged infidelity and driven by a vengeful love that is blocked, hurt and perverted: Peyton Loftis, who frantically needs a husband precisely because she loves her father; the decadent Milton, whose infidelity has made his marriage no more than a stage drama; and Helen, his wife, who loves only what she can control.
