Abstract:

Ogilvie, Georgia, is a place rooted in tradition, rich in family ties and southern hospitality. Its most famous citizen, the legendary writer Miss Zula Bragg, has finally said yes to making a documentary about her long and storied life. But Miss Zula, who can never resist stirring the pot, insists that Tied to the Tracks - a small film company from Hoboken, New Jersey - be the one to tell her story. The only problem? The company is run by free spirit Angie Mangiamele, who not so long ago had a passionate love affair with John Grant, a member of Ogilvie's founding family and chair of the English Department at Ogilvie College, where Miss Zula still teaches." "When Angie comes waltzing back into his life, dragging a camera crew behind, John is put off-balance - in large part because he is now engaged to a colleague, the elegant and successful Caroline Rose, daughter of a prominent local family. As Tied to the Tracks begins to dig into Miss Zula's life and the more troubling aspects of Ogilvie's history, John and Angie find it increasingly hard to hide their own past, and the sparks that still fly between them." "And they aren't the only people keeping secrets in Ogilvie. In the high heat of summer, Miss Zula, Caroline Rose, and a dozen other people scramble to unearth secrets, or to bury them once and for all. With John and Caroline's wedding only days away, time is running out, and Angie finds herself torn between the easy truths and the hard ones, and pondering the repercussions of the choices she must make.
