Who, on Earth, is this person? Born to the wail of a small-town train with a single tiny tear in her new-baby eyes, a down-home girl embarks early. She’s on a life of quests that range far afield but always end in the same place: back home and confident in the knowledge that God is a carnival dealer who knows the cards only when they’re face down. “I’m Peaches.” Don’t let her soft, sweet name deceive you. Standing taller than the towers of the Capital of Love and Hate, she can also bend low to slip out of her grandmother’s old Atlanta mansion - catching a tram, jumping a train, taking a plane to Anywhere, then returning with a world of mysteries, wrapped and unwrapped. “Is that you, Peaches?” Who will rid the night of silence? Brighten its grim, gray walls? Amaze the fool out of family and friends? Even baffle police and newsmen three to five times her age? Why, it’s the loving daughter of the Old South and presiding sprite of the New, now sketching out the latest chapter in the living Book of Woman on the dangdest surfaces. “G’Lord, Peaches, it’s you.”

About the Author:

Born in Atlanta and educated there, in Washington DC, and in New Zealand, Caroline Seton Ledlie has won critical acclaim, popular affection, and serious prizes for her fiction. She runs a national service program in support of troubled children on a 1,200-acre campus in west Georgia and serves as an editorial consultant to a foundation associated with the world's leading global health agency. (She also occasionally just plain runs, usually with her bulldog-boxer dog, Bear, in vales and on hills along the red-clay banks of the Chattahoochee.)
