A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Pinehill, North Carolina, the years of the Depression. Into this small Southern town comes the Bairds, fugitives from the burdens of their life in Connecticut. To the people of Pinehill, the Bairds seem glamorous. To the Bairds, Pinehill holds the hope that they will regain their innocence, and once again be rich in love.

From the Publisher:

For several years, I was intrigued by Alice Adams' books, but it wasn't until I joined a book club that I had the opportunity to read her. We agreed to read A SOUTHERN EXPOSURE, and when we reconvened a month later, we all deemed the book great!

Some of the women loved the Peyton Place-esque intrigue. Others enjoyed the authentic depiction of the South. Still others liked the wonderful characterization.

My favorite aspect of the book was the time period -- the 40's during World War II. Usually, when you read about World War II, it's about people who are directly involved with the war. It was very interesting to read how the war affected people in a small town in North Carolina -- thousands of miles away from the action. I was impressed with the intimate details of the period, and was quite surprised to learn that Alice Adams was not writing from first-hand knowledge (I discovered that she couldn't have been more than a small child -- if that -- in the 40's), since every detail rang so true.

I highly recommend this book for book club reading, especially, since it is a great read on so many levels.
