Magnolia Nights

Passion. Intrigue. Redemption

Ellie Pringle has spent endless hours and countless dollars working with a therapist to remember the lost years of her childhood. She’s baffled and more than a little intrigued when the grandmother she hasn’t seen in thirty-four years dies and leaves her a fortune. The time has come to face her past in person. Still reeling from a recent breakup of a long-term relationship, and with nothing to keep her in San Francisco, Ellie packs her meager belongings and boards a plane for the South Carolina Lowcountry.

Standing in the entryway of her grandmother’s antebellum home on South Battery Street in Charleston, Ellie faces the first of many ghosts who will soon haunt her. On her first night in the creepy, creaking mansion, as she’s perusing the titles in a dusty bookcase, she comes across her deceased mother’s leather-bound journal. Her mother’s words create more unanswered questions and send her on a quest to find more journals. As Hurricane Irma bears down on the South Carolina coast, Ellie encounters Julian Hagood, a handsome architect who has the talent to restore her dilapidated mansion and the charm to mend her broken heart. But as Ellie reads her mother’s diaries, they dislodge a stone in the wall that safeguards her memories, causing her world to come crumbling down. Revelations about her childhood lead Ellie on a harrowing journey of discovery that will hold readers spellbound until the dramatic conclusion.

“A little Flowers in the Attic action with an evil grandmother; mystery of blocked memories from childhood, and an historic old home that may hold the answers.” Sandy

“I find myself picturing the grand houses, hearing the charm of the southern voices, and feeling the southern heat. Ashley Farley is amazing with her detailing.” Charlotte Lynn

“I savored this book from the first page to the last. If I could rate this book a 10 I would.” Candy

“This novel evokes a feeling of old Charleston and held my interest with a sense of unease throughout the book. The descriptions of the home from which she escaped were gothic with a hint of the super natural and just pulled you into the plot. Renee
