Audio Book Summary

This night not only marked the end to the drought, but also the end to the long-held secret we'd kept hidden under the magnolias. Magnolia, South Carolina, 1980 Austin Foster is barely a teenager when her mama dies giving birth to twins, leaving her to pick up the pieces while holding her six siblings together and doing her best to stop her daddy from retreating into his personal darkness. Scratching out a living on the family's tobacco farm is as tough as it gets. When a few random acts of kindness help to ease the Fosters' hardships, Austin finds herself relying upon some of Magnolia's most colorful citizens for friendship and more. But it's next to impossible to hide the truth about the goings-on at Nolia Farms, and Austin's desperate attempts to save face all but break her. Just when it seems she might have something more waiting for her?with the son of a wealthy local family who she's crushed on for years?her father makes a choice that will crack wide-open the family's secrets and lead to a public reckoning. There are consequences for loving a boy like Vance Cumberland, but there is also freedom in the truth. T. I. Lowe's gritty yet tender and uplifting tale reminds us that a great story can break your heart...then heal it in the best possible way.

    I absolutely LOVED this book! If you are from the South, Lowe describes a memorable landscape, seasons to reminisce and temperatures to match and whole lot more to honor a few of the South’s pleasantries. This was my first TI Lowe novel and I am now looking for my next one. Outstanding! The narrator, incredible!! Really really well done!!

    Austin’s family is bigger than life, but so are their problems and their friends and neighbors. There is much to admire in all the main characters, but they all seem to “hide” their own personal stories. At the core of the story there is a tiny church on a tobacco farm with a wonderful “preacher” with great love and respect for all, but who is struggling with a very large problem. Secrets abound, but love finds a way.
