Journal Entry 1 by wingbookczukwing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA on Sunday, January 14, 2007
The thing about Mary Alice Monroe's books is that you always learn something. Sometimes it's about loggerheads, sometimes about birds of prey. Sometimes it's about heritage and tradition, as well as preserving the beauty of this wonderful lowcountry. That's why I always snap up her books-- the stories are the vehicle, at times almost incidental (though always well charactered and well told) to share this wonderful place with the world. Thank you, Mary Alice.

From the Publisher

Sweetgrass is a historical tract of land in South Carolina that has been home to the Blakely family for eight generations.

But Sweetgrass -- named for the indigenous grass that grows in the area -- is in trouble. Bulldozers are leveling surrounding properties. and the Blakelys could be forced to sell the one thing that continues to hold their disintegrating family together. For some of the Blakelys, the prospect of selling Sweetgrass is bittersweet -- for others, it is completely unimaginable. But as they find the strength to stay and fight, they realize that their bond as a family is all they need to stay together.
