Product Details


"This remains a solid read, sure to please readers who enjoy Southern fiction."
-Library Journal

"An assured fiction debut…Like Richard Russo’s novel Empire Falls, it smartly dissects and dynamics of small-town relationships and the interplay between prominent families and the less powerful over several generations…carefully constructed…you’ll fall for "Swan."
-USA Today

"Fueled by irresistable, page-turning questions."
San Francisco Chronicle

"A painstaking study of a small Southern town and its people…combining [Mayes’s] talent for vivid scene-setting that [she] showed in "Tuscan Sun" with deft plotting and solid character development."
-St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Loaded with finely-drawn minor characters and the alluring atmosphere of the American South, Swan is a well-paced…entertainment."
-New York Times Book Review
