About the Book

"Anne Rivers Siddons...writes with such astonishing lyrical beauty that you will want to read it aloud to everyone you ever loved."  — Pat Conroy

After twenty-one years Micah (Mike) Winship is making the big move--she's going home for a visit. She hasn't been back since 1963, when her father threw her out, but now he is dying and asking for her. And although she is armed with her succesful journalism career and the strength found after her divorce, she is nearing forty and her sophisticated urban lifestyle is falling apart.

Heading home, Mike is unprepared for a past that has lain in wait for her--one that includes an old love, a spoiled sister, and a plot to seize her family's land. And in trying to understand her long-forgotten self, she learns at last those lessons best learned early about love and loss, family and forgiveness, and the undeniable need for a place called home.

Critical Praise

“Powerful, sensitive...You won’t want to miss Homeplace.” — Atlanta Journal & Constitution

“Siddons is a fine teller of tales.” — Washington Post Book World

“Anne Rivers Siddons...writes with such astonishing lyrical beauty that you will want to read it aloud to everyone you ever loved.” — Pat Conroy

“Siddons. . . knows how to exploit the old South’s sense of Gothic and its mordant wit. At the same time, we believe in her portrait of the new South--still a place as difficult to take as it is to leave.” — New York Times Book Review

“Can you ever go home again? Siddons weaves a tender story around that theme, using a winsome narrative with just the right words, which she plucks as lovingly as from a field of flowers. She’s always written that way. When you finish the book, you’ll want to ask her to hurry on to the next one.” — Southern Living
