In 1849, Anne Tracy, a cultured, bookish young woman confined by antebellum society, married a railroad baron in her hometown of Macon, Georgia, William Butler Johnston, twenty years her senior. During their lengthy European honeymoon, Anne and William's formal marriage blossomed into an enchanting love story. The Johnstons returned home and built one of the most fabulous Italianate mansions in the South. Anne's privileged life was soon tested by tragedy and war.
Her journey from bitter heartbreak to renewed faith and forgiveness created a powerful legacy far greater than money. Sunrise, filled with meticulous research and authentic detail, tells the true story behind the marbled halls of the Johnston-Felton-Hay mansion, now one of modern Georgia's most acclaimed historic estates.

Madison, Georgia is in the heart of the state's cotton lands; the town is rich, surrounded by elegant plantations. Trevalyan (based heavily on a real setting) is one of the most beautiful. Cook explores the faith, family, politics and failings of a historic time.
