The ending was unfinished ....probably going to be a sequel.....but I won't be reading it
It is the story of Ellie Pringle who inherits an antebellum home in Charleston SC along with a substantial amount of money from a grandmother she hasn't seen or heard from since she was a small child. Raised by her father from the time she was six, she remembers little of her early years spent in her grandmother's home. Even a therapist couldn't help her.
Having nothing to keep her in San Francisco, Ellie moves to Charlotte and her grandmother's home in hopes of recovering her past. Between the thought of her grandmother's ghost creeping her out, and finding her mother's journals, Ellie begins a journey of finding herself, and the answers she needs to move forward.
Magnolia Nights brings old southern world charm of antebellum homes, intrigue, ghosts from the past, romance, new friends, and one heck of a twist. This is a book not to be missed.
Ashley Farley has written a lovely, inventive, and well-told story about a woman who inherits her grandmother's entire estate, including a pre-Civil War mansion, that has been in the family for generations in Charleston, SC. Ellie Pringle, an artist who has lived in San Francisco, decides to move to Charleston to not only accept the inheritance, but to uncover traumatic events that took place while Ellie was a child living in the Charleston mansion with her beautiful, photogenic mother and her hateful and controlling grandmother, Eleanor Pringle.
I found this intriguing tale wonderful, so much so that it was difficult to put down. "Magnolia Nights" had an eerie atmosphere and was populated with some fascinating characters: Abbott, Ellie's photopher father; Maddie, the housekeeper who held the key to some of the events that Ellie was unable to remember; Bennett, the gentlemanly Southern attorney handling the details of Ellie's inheritance; Louisa, the jealous friend that shared an apartment in New York with Ashton; Julian, the handsome architect who befriends Ellie; the mansion that in itself becomes a character; and a surprise character that makes an appearance later in the tale.
This book was so good that it was difficult to stop reading. I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Farley's story and her writing. The only criticisms are that I felt she rushed the ending a bit trying to tie up all the loose ends. I would have liked to know more about Abbott's and Ashton's relationship and greater detail on Ashton's modeling career. Other than that, I would recommend this book and think you all would enjoy the story.
The last comment that I found of interest when reading about the author was how she came to her writing career. I'll let you discover that on your own.
I have to admit, I liked the way the story moved rapidly. It has potential is the ending were to be rewritten. So many unanswered questions.
