About this ebook

The New York Times–bestselling author paints an intimate portrait of a family’s struggle to come together and protect their historic South Carolina home.

Sweetgrass is a historic tract of land in South Carolina that has been home to the Blakely family for eight generations. But Sweetgrass—named for the indigenous grass that grows in the area—is in trouble. Taxes are skyrocketing. Bulldozers are leveling the surrounding properties. And the Blakelys could be forced to sell the one thing that continues to hold their disintegrating family together.

When Preston Blakely suffers a stroke, his son Morgan returns from Montana to help run the property. Morgan’s mother, Mary Jane, has been estranged from Preston for years. But now she must take a hard look at the past. In Sweetgrass, Mary Alice Monroe shares a poignant tale of a family that must learn to unravel old patterns and weave together a new future.
