Book DescriptionOnce deemed "the most powerful man in the South," Charleston newspaper editor Frank Dawson met his violent death in March 1889, at the hands of his neighbor, a disreputable doctor who was attempting to seduce the Dawson family governess. Drawn from events surrounding this infamous episode, the third novel from the Lillian Smith Award-winning William Baldwin pulls back the veil of a genteel society in a fabled southern city and exposes a dark visage of anger and secret pain that no amount of imposed manners could restrain, and only love might eventually heal. With a southern storyteller?s passion for intricate emotional and physical details, Baldwin, through the fictional guise of Capt. David Lawton, chronicles editor Dawson?s fated end. Having survived three years of bloody Civil War combat and the decade of violent Reconstruction that followed, the liberal-minded Lawton is now an embattled newspaperman whose national importance is on the wane. Still, he...

Natives and Exotics

Amazon.comMoving backward through time, Natives and Exotics follows generations of one Australian family as they travel in and out of their native land, becoming "exotics" in faraway places. The first story belongs to Alice, a nine-year-old girl,living in Ecuador in the early '70s with her stepfather, an utterly soulless American diplomat, there to "help" the Ecuadorians, and her mother, vaguely wondering why she had married yet another insensitive man. Alice loves the sights and sounds and feel of Ecuador, but she longs for home. One night her mother talks about Australia. "But when Rosalind said it, there they were, the wattle, bottlebrush, snakes and Banksia man, the pebbled path beneath her feet, Grandma Vi with her thin freckled arms fanning herself with a palm frond. They all still dwelled inside Alice, near her ribs, like pain but not claimable, nothing." Then it is 1929 and Alice's grandmother, Violet, is living in Adelaide with her new husband, Alf, pregnant...
