Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Janie Treeborne lives on an orchard at the edge of Elberta, Alabama, and in time, she has become its keeper. A place where conquistadors once walked and where the peaches they left behind now grow, Elberta has seen fierce battles, violent storms, and frantic change - and when the town is once again threatened from without, Janie realizes it won't withstand much more. So she tells the story of its people: of Hugh, her granddaddy, determined to preserve Elberta's legacy at any cost; of his wife, Maybelle, the postmaster, whose sudden death thrown the town into chaos; of Maybelle's lover, Lee Malone, a black orchardist harvesting from a land where he is less than welcome; of the time Janie kidnapped her own Hollywood-obsessed aunt and tore the wrong people apart.
