About the Author:

Augusta Trobaugh is the author of the novels Swan Place and Sophie and the Rising Sun (both available from Plume), as well as Resting in the Bosom of the Lamb and Praise Jerusalem, which was a semifinalist in the Pirates Alley Faulkner Competition, and the upcoming novel The Tea-Olive Bird- Watching Society. She earned a master’s degree in English from the University of Georgia and has been awarded several grants from the Georgia Council of the Arts.

From Booklist:

Family secrets, redemption, and the power of love are Trobaugh's themes in this affecting novel set in a small southern town in the not-too-distant past. Jordan is a thoughtful and dreamy child, who escapes her stepfather's coldness and her mother's distance through the understanding of Peony, the family cook, whose last name, probably not coincidentally, is also Jordan. Peony's sister, Pansy, newly released from prison after serving time for accidentally killing her abusive husband, finds a place caring for Miss Amylee, Jordan's elderly grandmother. These African American, flower-named sisters, with their good cooking, good manners, and deep religious faith, find ways of dealing with a recalcitrant teen waitress, with Miss Amylee's fading attention, and with their beloved but simpleminded brother. Trobaugh's prose is deft and sweet: "'My name is Isaiah' [he] said in a way that made the word float out into the air all decorated with little curlicues." A comforting read. GraceAnne DeCandido
