"The scene is contemporary Charleston during a few tumultuous summer days that change the lives of the members of two of the city's families, the Redcliffs and the Hessenwinkles. The Redcliffs bear an old and distinguished name; the Hessenwinkles make up in vigor what they lack in taste and in social position. A strangely contrasting assortment of guests gathers at the three o'clock Sunday diner at which the Redcliff clan gallantly rallies to welcome Lorena Hessenwinkle into their sacrosanct midst. There were. . . 13 at table, but actually there is a 14th, Fen Redcliff who died before the story begins. His personality as left its indelible impress on most of those present, particularly on Judith who had been his wife, and on the flamboyant Lorena who is now his brother's bride. The story that develops is alive with violent and subtle emotions, full of the inevitable clashes that result when the destinies of people with contrasting standards become intertwined."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
