I'm pleased to introduce to you Mariann S. Regan, author of the book, Into the Briar Patch, which she describes on her website "...as a memoir about the author's maternal family, who were farmers in South Carolina from the early 1800s through recent years. It explores the long-term effects of slaveholding upon white Southerners, and it questions the makeup of good and evil."
I look forward to reading and reviewing her memoir in the coming weeks. In her guest post today, she gives a little background to her memoir. Enjoy! ~Caroline

I, too, research my southern roots (in North Carolina) and have come across slave owners in my lines. It is a difficult topic to address in one's family history. Mariann asked the hard questions. I look forward to reading her book.
