Gillon - red-haired, intelligent, vulnerable - comes to London to escape from the demands of her wealthy, conventional, socially superior family in Charleston, South Carolina. An art historian, she has a chance meeting with Tilly, whose long-term boyfriend Henry is a wildlife photographer who is finding it hard to commit. Before long Gillon has moved into their flat, replacing Henry's old mate William, William's on-off-girlfriend Susie, and a lots of mess and disorganisation. Things are changing, and Tilly finds it difficult to accept that her dreams of settling down with Henry are receding further into the distance, especially when Henry announces that he is going to South Carolina to photograph the abundant wildlife of the area. There, Henry is wholly seduced by the charms of Charleston, by Gillon's family, and by the old patrician way of life which presents itself. The rules seem to be changing, the time passing by, and the future is becoming less and less certain...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"She writes so beautifully... in a style so graceful and judicious that you would call it restful if it were not also palpably intelligent" * Evening Standard *
"Joanna Trollope is a wonderful novelist of domestic detail... Girl From the South is, like all her books, a really good read, spiked with insight" * Observer *
"Finely-observed family tensions" * Sunday Mirror *
"At the heart of Trollope's tightly written, acutely observed novel is what it means to be a family" * New Statesman *
"This is a novel about the modern affairs of the heart. It explores the dilemmas of men who won't commit themselves and women who yearn for sublime romantic love" * Daily Mail *
