A compelling story about an English family that immigrates to Charleston, South Carolina in the late 1790's to establish an office of their family business. The story chronicles their journey from the inception of the idea of coming to America, their journey across the Atlantic Ocean and their arrival in Charleston to find a different climate and a new culture. Their greatest joy is in building a summer house outside the city fronting on a large creek to escape the intense heat in the city in high summer, finding the porch to be a place that provided a sense of peace and contentment that they never knew possible. You will be delighted with the fun and adventure they find at the summer house.
