Description
It is 1920, and Edward Mason is making a call upon Miss Mary Bayly, the current owner of the legendary Mason family estate, the Retreat, in this stand-alone sequel to Christopher Tilghman's 1996 novel Mason's Retreat. Miss Mary is dying, and she plans to give the Retreat to the closest direct descendant of the original immigrant owner that she can find. Edward believes he can charm the old lady, secure the estate and be back in Baltimore by lunchtime. Instead, over the course of a long day, he hears the stories of slavery and emancipation that will forever bind him and his family to the land.

"A rare achievement. Christopher Tilghman's vision of the American past—and particularly of individuals caught in the tidal sweep of history—is dazzling in its precision and clarity."—Charles Frazier

"Offered in Tilghman's astonishing prose, the story of this place—focusing on two families, two races, the history of a peach orchard, and a love that is both natural and forbidden—is a reader's deep pleasure. The story flows inexorably through the insistent harm of the period, which is brought to such life that we see it is really our own. This is a big, wonderful novel."—Ron Carlson
