Things are changing, and Tilly finds it difficult to accept that her dreams of settling down with Henry are receding further into the distance, especially when Henry announces that he is going to South Carolina to photograph the abundant wildlife of the area. There, Henry is wholly seduced by the charms of Charleston, by Gillon's family, and by the old patrician way of life which presents itself. The rules seem to be changing, the time passing by, and the future is becoming less and less certain.

Don't bother with this one...
There are too many characters and the writer never develops the story of any of them deeply enough that you feel you know them. The southerners are portrayed as flakey and superficial and the british characters are annoying and cold. The narrater incorrectly pronounced "Edisto", an island in South Carolina, several times. The story skips around and leaves you wondering if you missed parts of it. The best thing about this book is Audible's description.

Growing up is hard to do
First of all, I am a huge fan of Trollope writers. Anthony and Joanna both write with love and conviction, about the middle class people they know. They like their characters and so do I.
This book and story are about growing up and relationships and change. I like the people as is generally the case with the Trollopes. It is a kind book without being sappy. The story and people are compelling and true. If you like people and good writing, read the book. You will be sad when it is over but the characters are not that easily dismissed. They will be with you when you least expect their visit. Offer tea and enjoy their story.
