Return To Bridgetown, the fourth book in the Rose Series, begins the summer after Rose's graduation from high school. Her friend, Lily, marries against everyone's advice. A new house takes shape on the site of the Keller mansion, which burned to the ground in View From the Attic, and Aunt Margaret becomes obsessed with its planning and neglects family and friends. Rose enters college at Moreland and finds a new friend, Ashley. She realizes that bigotry can be found everywhere, although it is more subtle in college. She meets her first love, Lewis David, at Moreland, who turns out not to be the person he claims to be. The summer after her first year in college finds Rose at Granny Esther's, nursing her grandmother back to health after a heart attack. She begins to rethink her education goals and finds herself going against Aunt Margaret's wishes. A speeding ticket in her red MG may be the beginning of a long lasting romance for Rose.
