Burnt Mountain is a coming of age story in the southern US. Thayer’s wealthy grandmother, Grand, exiled her parents to a small town because her she didn’t trust her daughter-in-law to enter Atlanta’s aristocratic upper class society. Thayer grows up a tomboy in a home were she was expected to be most gentile. It turns out she was most like her Grand who eventually grooms Thayer to inherit her father’s rarified legacy. When Thayer returns from working at a summer camp pregnant, she is tricked by her mother into having an abortion. And the drama continues when she starts college. Not the best book but I found it engaging and humourous.
