Atlanta in 1900 was a city of contrasts: a bustling place where commerce and high society flourished amid the languid rhythms of the sultry South. Claire Lang loved her life there, but one man's presence unsettled her very soul. John Hawthorn's dark eyes and lean, handsome face captivated Claire more than she wanted to admit. And when tragedy struck, Claire found herself desperate enough to marry him—a man who couldn't return her passionate love.
As the fragrant scent of the magnolia wafted on warm breezes, Claire aroused fierce, unexpected desires in her elusive husband. And once she had tasted his kisses and savored his lovemaking, she dared to fight for him as a sizzling scandal threatened to engulf them and the love she began to believe could be theirs….

Magnolia in Stellenbosch, South Africa

Magnolia in Stellenbosch, South Africa

Magnolia grandiflora, Stellenbosch. Magnolias were long known in China for their medicinal qualities. They flourished in Spanish South America and Mexico, and the first descriptions were made by Spaniards around 1651. Ranging as far north as Virginia, the tree was first exported to Europe by John Bannister, an English missionary and plant collector. It ws named ‘magnolia’ in 1703 by the botanist Charles Plumier (1646-1704) after his French teacher Pierre Magnol (1638-1715), and the name was taken over by Carolus Linnaeus in 1735. Later it was cultivated with great success in the warm climes of South Africa.
The tree of this particular flower at Stellenbosch is exactly midway between the so-called Moederkerk (=Mother Church) of the Reformed Church and its vicarage and the Theological Faculty at Stellenbosch. One of the meanings or attributions of ‘magnolia’ is perseverance, and this is apt for this particular place. Johannes Henoch Neethling (1826-1904), the vicar of the Moederkerk for some 46 years, and his wife Maria Murray Neethling (1831-1912), an almost forgotten female writer of especially mystical literature, were closely allied with the protestant, devotional “Reveil”, re-awakening, of which a central concept is that of perseverance. A hundred metres on the other side of the tree, the Theological Faculty of which the moving forces were Nicolaus Jacobus Hofmeyr (1827-1909) and Maria’s brother John Murray (1826-1882) also espoused this mystical, neo-calvinist theology. It must be noted that these theologians were often at odds with general conservative ‘Boer’ ideology. Before coming to Stellenbosch, Hofmeyr had been a pastor at Calvinia; there he allowed the indigenous population into his church, much to the dismay of his white parishioners. He had, however, persevered, and when he was forced to leave Calvinia, he retained his broad, humanitarian views in Stellenbosch. In this sense, too, he persevered, and the marvellously huge magnolia tree, the flower of which is pictured, is a fitting symbol of this struggle.

Tiffany Blue Wedding Cake with Gems and Magnolias

This Tiffany blue wedding cake was made for the "Cakes for Cause" event in Gladstone NJ. It was a chocolate fudge cake with Amaretto Moccha cream and Madagascar Vanilla Bean fillings, which picked up on the bride's love for coffee and coffee shops. The Tiffany blue fondant is covered in an assortment of cast sugar gems to replicate diamonds and aquamarine jewels. The cake is finished with an array of large Magnolia flowers, each with a large gem at the center. We were pleased to earn a close run second place! (Picture courtesy of DominikaPhoto).

Adam Sandler takes a shot at critical respectability with Punch-Drunk Love, a movie by director Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia). Sandler plays Barry Egan, a lonely small businessman who calls a phone sex line one night, only to find himself the victim of an extortion scheme the next day--the very same day on which he goes out on a date with the woman who may be the love of his life (the utterly delightful Emily Watson). Barry is a lot like Sandler's popular comic characters--socially maladept, prone to violence, always on the brink of embarrassment--but here Sandler plays it real; the result is both off-putting and sympathetic. Anderson's writing skills, unfortunately, are not as strong as his visual sense. Punch-Drunk Love has many strengths (including great supporting actors Philip Seymour Hoffman and Luis Guzman), but ultimately fizzles out. --Bret Fetzer
