Beauty From AshesBook - 1995
The sweeping saga of two families of St. Simons Island -the Coupers and the Frasers-resumes in 1852, as Anne Couper Fraser grieves the deaths of her husband and her parents. As she begins to piece together her broken like, all around her the society she knows so well is falling apart. The roots of the Civil War are already evident, Anne's family, like the South itself, seethes with internal conflict. Her son and grandson, who find it impossible to spurn their Southern heritage, enlist in the Confederate Army. Anne, in strong sympathy with the Unionists, finds her life disintegrating once again, and the family, the region, and the natio begin an agonizing collapse.
