Product Description

Adelaide Piper, small-town Gen-X debutante and renegade poetess, calls her own tune. But Piper's tunes lead her and those closest to her to dangerous places. Tragedy and heartbreak mean a return to the very ground that she once cursed, though with a deeper appreciation for that Southern heritage, however infirm it may be.

Publisher's Description

“With humor and a nice southern accent…a fine follow-up to her highly praised first novel, Grace at Love Tide.”

Booklist, starred review

The year is 1989 and dark currents lurk beneath the smooth surface of the elite Virginia campus where Adelaide Piper has come to study. Her poetic sensibility and idealism only irritate the socialites and cynics who notice her at all.

After a heartbreaking loss of innocence, Adelaide must navigate between her genteel Southern upbringing and the gritty realities of a new generation.

Ultimately Adelaide must return to the very ground she once cursed, finding a deeper appreciation for her Southern heritage, however broken and imperfect.

    I loved Adelaide Piper, not just for the story, which I found compelling. But also for the beautiful writing. Beth Webb Hart is high on my list of authors. Her description, voice, and character development are excellent. I also highly recommend The Wedding Machine.

    Wonderful story. So well written. I felt like I was living in the South. The descriptions were lovely. Such an uplifting story even with the tears and sadness. God is always in control.

    In Williamstown, South Carolina Adelaide Piper has always wanted to attend a prestigious college to develop her poetry skills. Thus when she is accepted by the elite liberal arts Nathaniel Buxton University, she is euphoric. However her elation turns sour as she is disappointed to find the Virginia university is a party school.<P>Still Adelaide makes the best of a bad situation even after a student dies in a hazing incident. She goes out on a date, but that turns nasty as the boy demands she put out for him. Adelaide feels alone as her father is preoccupied with making a zillion dollars through a pyramid like scheme and her mother struggles with raising her two other wilder daughters without any paternal help. Her two best friends also struggle with lifes curveballs. Adelaide turns to religion as she tries to better understand why life seems so cruel.<P>Though too much is piled on as Adelaide, must be the Job-magnet with so many ugly things happening to her family and friends, her return to religion is deftly handled and realistic as she serves as the focus of this fine story line. Her family members and her two friends face personal crisis that isolate Adelaide further and the university is a disappointment as she selected it to learn. Beth Wenn Hart writes a top quality character study in which the heroines finds spiritual salvation and solace in God.<P>Harriet Klausner
