Eugenia Price and a Giveaway

We have a book discussion group at work called "Books My Mother Liked". I think of that when I think of Eugenia Price. I remember my mother reading and loving Price's "Savannah Quartet" when it first came out in the late '70s. Now, Turner Publishing is re-releasing the series in paperback and digital formats. The the late Eugenia Price's "Savannah Quartet," are comprised of SavannahTo See Your Face AgainBefore the Darkness Falls and Stranger in Savannah. The new editions/formats are now available. And, I have a copy of Eugenia Price's Savannah to give away to kick off the series. If you love family epics covering American history, you might want to try the "Savannah Quartet".

Interested? Here are the summaries of the books. 

Orphaned Mark Browning was only twenty when he renounced his father's fortune and sailed to Savannah, his mother's birthplace . . . and the home of two remarkable women. The first is Eliza McQueen Mackay, his mentor's beautiful wife, whom Mark loves with a deep, pure love that can never be spoken. The other is lovely young Caroline Cameron, whose life is blighted by a secret that has tormented her grandparents for half a century—a secret that affects Mark more closely than he imagines. Desiring one woman, loved by another, Mark must confront the ghosts of a previous generation, and face the evil smoldering hate, before he can truly call Savannah his home.

To See Your Face Again

Natalie Browning was a spoiled belle of sixteen when she met the man of her dreams aboard the
steamship Pulaski. Burke Latimer, only eight years her senior, was a self-made man with no time for a pretty child. Then a night of terror ended the voyage and Burke discovered another Natalie. But the night that brought him love also wreaked disaster on his fortune, and Burke was forced to ask Natalie to wait until he could make a home worthy of her. Life had never denied Natalie before. Her need to be with Burke drove her to follow him to Georgia's back country, hoping to show him she was ready to be his bride. Could she grow up before she lost the love of her life forever?

Before the Darkness Falls
Georgia, 1842. In this grand and passionate era of American history, forged by the dreams of extraordinary men and women, the McKay, Browning, and Stiles families find themselves experiencing love, hardship, and pain in the great Southern city of Savannah. The willful Natalie Browning Latimer’s newfound marital bliss has been threatened by a shattering loss, while the ambitious W. H. Stiles becomes wrapped up in a daring political trail that leads his family into the turmoil of Western Europe. Natalie’s brother Jonathan Browning shocks the family by dropping out of Yale to be with the one woman who could never be welcomed into Savannah society. As the families struggle to maintain their deep love for one another, the South struggles to justify its connection to the Union and moves toward succession.

Stranger in Savannah

Savannah, 1854. Throughout the city's elegant streets, stirrings of the Civil War are taking hold. For three

families, the Brownings, the Mackays, and the Stileses, the war has already begun within their hearts, drawing battle lines where once there was love. Mark Browning's unwavering faith in the Union sparks a battle of conscience that threatens all that he holds dear . . . and challenges the loyalty of his headstrong daughter, Natalie. The elderly Mackay matriarch, Miss Eliza, is Mark's only ally in a city divided within itself. For the Stileses, their lives are forever changed as the legacies of the past clash with an uncertain future.

I have never read any books by this author (hanging head) and each of them sound so good. Thanks for the giveaway.

Don't hang your head, Karen. They were popular almost forty years ago.
