Like Jane Austen, she stays close to her characters and weaves intrigue out of their interrelated and complex life stories.@95@rdquo;@18@ --San Jose Mercury News@19@ @16@ @95@#160;@16@ In her final novel, published posthumously, Alice Adams returns to the Southern college town of Pinehill, the setting for her acclaimed @18@Southern Exposure.@19@@16@ @18@@95@#160;@19@@16@ Even after five years in Pinehill, Cynthia Baird is still considered a Yankee. And life has become more difficult since the beginning of the war. With Harry stationed in London, Cynthia finds life in a small town complicated not only be loneliness but also by a growing awareness of local racism and anti-Semitism. Their daughter Abigail is about to return north for college, and the two generations are forced to determine what they cherish and what they must leave behind.
