BEECHES is chronologically the earliest LANDFALL novel, taking place in the 1780’s. Young Acting-Lieutenant Edward Pelham is stricken by yellow-fever. The cure leaves him in worse peril...

Much beloved by Landfall readers, in this novel Mary Pelham comes into her own at the heart of the story. The Pelham family dynamics are poignant and unexpected.
