Recent release “Kiss The Magnolia Tree” from Covenant Books author R. Douglas White is an enthralling story of a man who is heartbroken at the loss of his wife and uproots his life by moving to a small South Carolina village. Much to his surprise, the tranquil facade of the old town covers the reality of mysteries and miracles.

R. Douglas White, a talented author has completed his new book, “Kiss The Magnolia Tree”:  a compelling tale of a man who embarks on a brand new journey.

White shares, “Three years after the tragic death of his artistic wife, Douglas White enrolled for one year of graduate work at Erskine Seminary in upstate South Carolina. Doug and his dog, Sugar Baby, packed up and moved to the beautiful old village of Abbeville, South Carolina from the bustling university city of Knoxville, Tennessee. After a proper interview with the formidable Margaret Bowie, he rented a room in her home, Bowie Hall. Little did Doug know that this event would lead to an amazing adventure for both of them. Being a therapist for twenty-three years helped Doug navigate the compelling Miss Margaret, her biting dog Possum, the brokenness of personal loss, and the intricate subtleties of southern traditions. Doug suspected from the beginning that Miss Margaret and he shared a love of dogs, but the rest of the story is one of surprises and miracles.”
