Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
When it comes to depicting the modern American South, Anne River Siddons is unrivaled. In "Fox's Earth," called "psychologically astute and excellently written" by "Cosmopolitan," she pens a dark but seductive tale of five generations of Southern women and the house that was at once both their greatest inheritance and their most confining prison.

In 1904, Ruth Yancey is only ten years old when she is brought to live at the magnificent mansion called Fox's Earth. But the impoverished daughter of an abusive mill worker has already internalized her mother's steely code: Men may hold all the power, but a woman possesses one thing that can get her anything in the world she wants...if she's prepared to make certain sacrifices. Deserted by her mother in order to give her a better chance at wealth, Ruth's own ambition drives her to possess Fox's Earth at any cost, even though her sacrifice will ultimately be her own husband, children, and grandchildren.

About the author

Biography of Siddons, Anne Rivers

Novelist Anne Rivers Siddons was born in Fairburn, Georgia in 1936. She studied at Auburn University in Alabama and Oglethorpe University in Atlanta. Siddons was an editor and columnist for the Auburn Plainsman, senior editor for Atlanta magazine and worked in advertising. Her treatment of the South in her novels often earns comparisons to Margaret Mitchell. One of her books, Peachtree Road, won her Georgia author of the year honors (1988). her novels include: Sweetwater Creek, Off Season and Burnt Mountain. She and her husband, Heyward Siddons, shuttle between a sprawling home in Brookhaven, Atlanta, and their summer home in Brooklin, Maine.

Book description

When it comes to depicting the modern American South, Anne River Siddons is unrivaled. In Fox's Earth, called "psychologically astute and excellently written" by Cosmopolitan, she pens a dark but seductive tale of five generations of Southern women and the house that was at once both their greatest inheritance and their most confining prison.

In 1904, Ruth Yancey is only ten years old when she is brought to live at the magnificent mansion called Fox's Earth.

But the impoverished daughter of an abusive mill worker has already internalized her mother's steely code: Men may hold all the power, but a woman possesses one thing that can get her anything in the world she wants... if she's prepared to make certain sacrifices. Deserted by her mother in order to give her a better chance at wealth, Ruth's own ambition drives her to possess Fox's Earth at any cost, even though her sacrifice will ultimately be her own husband, children, and grandchildren.
