Counter Eugenia Price, one of America's most treasured  writers, is back with Beauty From  Ashes, the long-awaited final volume in her  popular Georgia Trilogy. Eugenia Price is America's  first lady of storytelling. For thirty years she has  captivated millions of readers with her sweeping  historical novels of the antebellum South. Now,  with Beauty From Ashes, the final  installment of her Georgia Trilogy (which includes  The New York Times best-seller  Bright Captivity and Where  Shadows Go ), Ms. Price returns to her  beloved South, but it's the South of heartbreak and  Civil War. It is 1852. After recovering from the  death of her husband and her parents, Anne Couper  Fraser is devastated to learn that she has also  lost her home on St. Simons Island. Seeking refuge in  Marietta, Georgia, some three hundred miles from  the solace of her home on the Georgia coast, Anne  finds the perfect house -- a place she can again  call "home." As she is adjusting to this  new life the chill of war sweeps in. And as  happened to so many Southern families, the Frasers split  when Anne's son and grandson, who are loathe to  turn against their Southern roots, enlist in the  Confederate Army. Anne, who sympathizes with the  Unionists, finds her loyalties torn. Then, facing her  own mortality, and befriended by a young Union  doctor, Anne rediscovers the depth of her faith, and  learns that even the cruelest misfortune does not  mean defeat for the human spirit. Filled with  characters drawn from history, lore, and Ms. Price's  own fertile imagination, Beauty From  Ashes is a touching, inspirational story of  courage, love, and friendship that is guaranteed to  capture the hearts and minds of new and devoted  readers alike.
