Set in Edwardian Portsmouth, this is the enchanting story of a girl who has to choose between an exciting secret love and the boy everyone thinks she will marry. Beautiful Fidelis McCauley instantly falls for handsome Lieutenant Daniel Herrick when he rescues her hat from blowing away during the triumphant celebrations marking the return of his ship. Fidelis is determined to escape her treadmill existence and her chance meeting with Daniel seems to open new doors for her. But loving Daniel is risky - his father, a marine colonel, will disown his son if he finds out about his secret affair with a servant girl. And will Daniel, who has grown accustomed to his privileged background, be willing give up everything for the one he loves? Meanwhile Fidelis has already promised her hand to a childhood friend Harry, drifting into the engagement to please his family whose house was a second home while she was growing up. But Harry is far away in India with the Royal Marines.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The superintendent is the remote deity of the southern school system. He hires and fires, manipulates the board of education, and maintains the status quo. #2 Yamacraw is an island off the South Carolina mainland not far from Savannah, Georgia. It is populated with black people who depend on the sea and their small farms for a living. Several white families live on the island in a paternalistic but symbiotic relationship with their neighbors. #3 The parable of Yamacraw is a story of how the black people of an island supported themselves well, worked hard, and lived up to the sacred tenets of the Protestant ethic. Then a villain came and contaminated the creeks, which led to the oysters dying and the people dying with them. #4 I was a nomad growing up, moving constantly with my military father. I loved the smooth-watered fifties, when I worried about the top-ten tunes and the homecoming queen.

Understanding Pat Conroy

An insightful look at the life and work of the extraordinary popular Southern writer. Pat Conroy’s novels and memoirs have indelibly shaped the image of the South in the American imagination. His writing has rendered the physical landscape of the South Carolina lowcountry familiar to legions of readers, and has staked out a more complex geography as well—one defined by domestic trauma, racial anxiety, religious uncertainty, and cultural ambivalence. In Understanding Pat Conroy, Catherine Seltzer engages in a sustained consideration of Conroy and his work. The study begins with a sketch of Conroy’s biography, which, while fascinating in its own right, is employed here to illuminate many of the motifs and characters that define his work and to locate him within southern literary tradition. Seltzer then explores each of Conroy’s major works, tracing the evolution of the themes within and among each of his novels, including The Great Santini, The Lords of Discipline, The Prince of Tides, Beach Music, and South of Broad, and his memoirs, among them The Water Is Wide and My Losing Season. Seltzer’s insightful close readings of Conroy’s work are supplemented by interviews and archival material, shedding new light on the often-complex dynamics between text and context in Conroy’s oeuvre. More broadly, Understanding Pat Conroy explores the ways that Conroy delights in troubling the boundaries that circumscribe the literary establishment—and links his work to existing debates about the contemporary American canon.
