Low Country : If Caro drinks a little too much for Clay's liking, he knows the reason why, and he takes comfort in the fact that she can escape to the island in the Lowcountry that her beloved Granddaddy left her. Wild and seemingly timeless, the island is a place of incomparable, breathtaking beauty-and it is the one place where Caroline can lose herself and simply forget. Roaming the island is a band of wild ponies, whose freedom and spirit have captivated Caro since she was a child. When she learns that her husband must either develop the island or lose the company that he has spent his whole life building, she is devastated. The Lowcountry is Caroline's heritage-the one constant she believed would never change. A resort would not only tame (and therefore destroy) the island she loves-but what will happen to the wild ponies? HC, 290 pages.
