Upcoming Event
Sunday, July 29, 2018 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Goolrick broke readers’ hearts with his Southern drama A Reliable Wife, and he returns to the mid-century American South with this new epic. His heroine, Diana Cooke, comes of age after World War I and, determined to save her family’s fortunes, marries the mysterious Captain Copperton for money. Copperton turns out to be a brutal, unbearable husband, and once Diana has a son she adores, she finds herself afraid, faced with scandal, and torn between duty to her family and the potential for love.
