"Claypole White's gift is her ability to put us into the troubled minds of her characters in a way that helps us not only understand them but fall in love with them as well."

—Diane Chamberlain, New York Times bestselling author


About The Gin Club

Luca Heywood is fighting to save the family farm he hates with handcrafted gin that captures the essence of Carolina. But when he discovers his alienated son is being bullied, he must embrace unlikely friendships, open his heart to an abused stray, and face the teen tragedy that defined his life. Maybe then he can create a new family on the land he once loved.
