    The Masons are a prominent but now fragmented family who have lived for generations in Swan, an Edenic, hidebound small town in Georgia. As Swan opens, a bizarre crime pulls Ginger Mason home from her life as an archeologist in Italy: The body of her mother, Catherine, a suicide 19 years before, has been mysteriously exhumed. Reunited on new terms with her troubled, isolated brother J. J., who has never ventured far from Swan, the Mason children grapple with the profound effects of their mother's life and death on their own lives.
