Author Info
Anne Rivers Siddons
Anne Rivers Siddons was born an only child in the small railroad town of Fairburn, Georgia. Her father was a title lawyer and her mother, a high school secretary. Siddons studied commercial art at Auburn University while editing and writing for "The Auburn Plainsman." She worked in advertising in Atlanta after graduation, became a senior editor for "Atlanta" magazine in 1964, and earned a doctorate from Oglethorpe University in Atlanta. She married her husband, Heyward L. Siddons, in 1966. In 1974, Siddons became a full-time writer, producing a long list of best-selling contemporary and traditional romances that vary widely in themes, but are most often set in the South and deal with troubled families and relationships.
From the Publisher
Editors Note An unforgettable story of love, acceptance, and tradition. When Maude Chambliss first arrives at Retreat, the seasonal home of her husband's aristocratic family, she is a nineteen-year-old bride fresh from South Carolina's Low Country. Among the patrician men and women who reside in the summer colony on the coast of Maine, her gypsy-like beauty and impulsive behavior immediately brand her an outsider. She, as well as everyone else, is certain she will never fit in. And of course, she doesn't...at first. But over the many summers she spends there, Maude comes to cherish life in the colony, as she does the people who share it with her. There is her husband Peter, consumed with a darkness of spirit; her adored but dangerously fragile children; her domineering mother-in-law, who teaches her that it is the women who posses the strength to keep the colony intact; and Maine native Micah Willis, who is ultimately Maude's truest friend. This brilliant novel, rich with emotion, is filled with appealing, intense, and indomitable characters. Anne Rivers Siddons paints a portrait of a woman determined to preserve the spirit of past generations--and the future of a plaice where she became who she is...a place called Colony. ||"An outstanding multigenerational novel...We are hooked from the moment we meet Maude." |--The New York Times
