“A Southern Cinderella story with heart, soul, and humor. As sweet and tart as summer lemonade.”
—Christie Ridgway, USA Today bestselling author
A delightful new voice in Southern fiction, Lorelle Marinello makes a truly dazzling debut with Salting Roses—a novel that immediately places her in the esteemed company of Elinor Lipman, Loraine Despres, and Stephanie Gayle. In Salting Roses, a young woman abandoned as an infant on an Alabama porch is horrified to discover that she is the missing heiress to a vast Connecticut fortune—a birthright she wants desperately to reject in favor of her Peachtree Lane roots. A modern-day fairy tale with a Southern twist, rich in atmosphere and chock full of unforgettably eccentric characters, Lorelle Marinello’s novel is not to be missed.
