Summary
"Entrenched on the same land since the early 1800s, the Howlands have, for seven generations, been pillars of their Southern community. Extraordinary family lore has been passed down to Abigail Howland, but not all of it. When shocking facts come to light about her late grandfather William's relationship with Margaret Carmichael, a black housekeeper, the community is outraged, and quickly gathers to vent its fury on Abigail. Alone in the house the Howlands built, she is at once shaken by those who have betrayed her, and dtermined to punish the town that has persecuted her and her kin."
Summary
Abigail is the last keeper of the house, the last to know the Howland family's secrets. Now in the name of all her brothers and sisters, she must take her bitter revenge on the small-minded Southern town that shames them
