An unforgettable story of love, acceptance, and tradition. When Maude Chambliss first arrives at Retreat, the seasonal home of her husband's aristocratic family, she is a nineteen-year-old bride fresh from South Carolina's Low Country. Among the patrician men and women who reside in the summer colony on the coast of Maine, her gypsy-like beauty and impulsive behavior immediately brand her an outsider. She, as well as everyone else, is certain she will never fit in. And of course, she doesn' first. But over the many summers she spends there, Maude comes to cherish life in the colony, as she does the people who share it with her. There is her husband Peter, consumed with a darkness of spirit; her adored but dangerously fragile children; her domineering mother-in-law, who teaches her that it is the women who posses the strength to keep the colony intact; and Maine native Micah Willis, who is ultimately Maude's truest friend. This brilliant novel, rich with emotion, is filled with appealing, intense, and indomitable characters. Anne Rivers Siddons paints a portrait of a woman determined to preserve the spirit of past generations--and the future of aplaice where she became who she is...a place called Colony. "An outstanding multigenerational novel...We are hooked from the moment we meet Maude." The New York Times

Anne Hatley is a twenty-five-year-old spitfire from the South, born with a genetic mutation: She has only one leg and walks with a computerized limb. Looking for an escape from the drudgery of work and the fiance who bores and irritates her more than makes her happy, Anne hopes to make easy money off her genes by accepting an invitation from a research colony in Cold Spring Harbor, New York. Scientists there--DNA pioneer James D. Watson among them--are looking to develop a groundbreaking "cure" and make Anne the first patient to generate a new leg. Anne feels fine the way she is. But after years of casual cruelty at the hands of her peers, and three months of observation by callous doctors playing on her every insecurity, she capitulates. While in residence, Anne drifts into a relationship with the rakish Nick, carrier of the "suicide gene"; becomes friends with Charles Darwin, who inexplicably pops up for chats when she's distressed; and comes to terms with her first love, a married man she's nicknamed "Old Faithful." Meanwhile, she questions what it means to change from one physical form to another and becomes increasingly uncomfortable with the societal pressure to do so.
