For many, South Carolina is a sunny vacation destination. For those who have been lucky enough to call it home, it is a source of rich memories and cultural heritage. In this final volume of State of the Heart, thirty-eight nationally and regionally known writers share their personal stories about places in South Carolina that hold special meaning for them. While this is a book about place, it is ultimately about people’s connections to one another, to a complex, common past, and to ongoing efforts to build a future of promise and possibility in the Palmetto State. Editor Aïda Rogers groups the essays thematically, with poetry, vintage photographs, and even recipes introducing each section. She unites pieces by New York Times best-selling novelists Patti Callahan Henry, CJ Lyons, and John Jakes; USA Today best-selling mystery writer Susan Boyer; historians Walter Edgar, Orville Vernon Burton, and Bernard Powers; artist and author Mary Whyte; and cookbook authors Sallie Ann Robinson and the Lee Brothers—just to name a few. Nikky Finney, a South Carolina native and winner of the 2011 National Book Award for poetry, provides the foreword. The afterword is written by Cassandra King, author of six novels, including the New York Times best seller The Sunday Wife."

This extraordinary collection of photographs captures the soul of the University of South Carolina and reflects a dynamic atmosphere that has attracted students for two hundred years. Sure to evoke memories in proud alumni and inspire the dreams of young scholars, nearly 250 images of people, places, and architecture reveal how much has changed--and how much remains the same. Familiar landmarks such as the historic Horseshoe and the east campus with its diverse architecture are showcased alongside scenes of progress and growth at an institution where change is constant. The Carolina spirit is evident in all of Robert C. Clark's vibrant photographs: students studying beside the library reflecting pool, the Carolina Marching Band storming the field at Williams-Brice Stadium, a researcher holding in his hands the next generation of silicon wafers. And the lens extends beyond Columbia--to the shores of the University-owned Pritchard's Island, the Baruch Marine Field Laboratory, and the campuses at Aiken, Beaufort, Lancaster, Salkehatchie, Spartanburg, Sumter, and Union--illustrating the breadth and diversity of the University of South Carolina experience. From move-in day to commencement, from the classrooms to the playing fields, this volume records breathtaking moments of discovery, of teaching and learning, of students on the cusp of new lives. A foreword by John M. Palms, University president, and Chris Horn's informative captions combine with Clark's photographs to present a kaleidoscopic view of Carolina that will be treasured by generations. University of South Carolina: A Portrait is a celebration of a great university.

Adam Finney, a young man who is mentally disabled, faces sterilization and lobotomy in a state-supported asylum. When he is found dead in the French Broad River of rural North Carolina, his teenaged stepsister, Jess, is sought for questioning by their family and the police. Jess’s odyssey of escape across four states leads into dark territories of life-and-death moral choices where compassion and grace offer faint illumination but few answers. A Question of Mercy, set in a vivid landscape of the mid-twentieth-century South, is the fifth novel from Robert Penn Warren Award–winning writer Elizabeth Cox. As she challenges notions of individual freedom and responsibility against a backdrop of questionable practices governing treatment of the mentally disabled, she also stretches the breadth and limitations of the human heart to love and to forgive. Jess Booker, on the run and alone, leaves the comfort of her home near Asheville, recklessly trekking through woods and hitchhiking her way to a boarding house in tiny Lula, Alabama, a perceived safe haven she once visited with her late mother. Pursued by a mysterious car with a faded “I Like Ike” sticker, Jess is also haunted by memories of her mother’s early death, her father’s distressing marriage to Adam’s mother, the loving bond she was able to form with Adam despite her initial resistance, and her boyfriend Sam’s troubling letters from the thick of combat in the Korean War. In Lula, Jess finds, if only briefly, a respite among a curious surrogate family of fellow displaced outsiders banded together under one roof, and there she finds the strength to heed the call homeward to face the questions she cannot answer about her stepbrother’s death. Through her vibrant depictions of characters in crisis and of the lush, natural landscapes of her southern settings, Cox brings to the fore the moral, ethical, and seemingly unnatural decisions people face when caring for society’s weakest members. Grappling with the powerful bonds of love and family, A Question of Mercy recognizes the countless ways people come to help one another and the poor choices they can make because of love—choices that challenge the boundaries of human decency and social justice but also choices that can defy what is legal in the course of seeking what is right. Jill McCorkle, a Dos Passos Prize–winning novelist and short story writer and the author of Life after Life, provides a foreword to the novel.
