If you have never read Dorothea's books before, you have been really missing something special. You might want to start with Plantation. Here's a little blurb about Plantation from Goodreads; Caroline Wimbley Levine always swore she'd never go home again. But now, at her brother's behest, she has returned to South Carolina to see about Mother - only to find that the years have not changed the Queen of Tall Pines Plantation. Miss Lavinia is as maddeningly eccentric as ever - and absolutely will not suffer the questionable advice of her children. This does not surprise Caroline. Nor does the fact that Tall Pines is still brimming with scandals and secrets, betrayals and lies. But she soon discovers that something is different this time around. It lies somewhere in the distance between her and her mother - and in her understanding of
what it means to come home...
Ah ha, got you intrigued now, I bet! For a complete list of Dorothea's books, visit her website.
