About this title

Synopsis:

Returning home from college to her grandfather's prosperous Carolina vineyard, Mavis Black discovers a growing emotional distance from her eccentric southern family--her dreamy mother, blacksheep uncle, and powerful grandfather, Punk. A first novel. 15,000 first printing. Tour.

Review:

A coming-of-age story set in the deep South, where the transformation of Mavis Black, a young woman who just graduated from college, reflects changes taking place in the land in which she grew up. Punk and Miss Pauline, Mavis' grandparents, impact her the most. As relics of the old South working to adapt to life in the 1990s, they empathize with their granddaughter's transition to adulthood through good-natured humor. And though Mavis' heart settles on a young archer named Harris, she keeps her distance, at least for a time, preferring to revel in her own emerging individuality.
