Desideratum Podcast

Folly Park by Heidi Hackford E66 Desideratum

Folly Park is a story about history, race, identity, and friendship. At its heart is a woman named Temple Preston and her old, crumbling, ancestral plantation in Virginia.  With the discovery of long hidden, disturbing family secrets, Temple gets wrapped up in exposing these family secrets as a way to save the ancestral home, until she begins to question whether it's really worth saving.  Author Heidi Hackford talks about the character she eventually grew to like,  about the power of semantics, and about how her work at Monticello – and how people responded to it – helped shape this story.  My thanks to Folly Park’s publisher She Writes Press and author Heidi Hackford for sharing Temple and Vee and this story full of history and surprises with me.  I would love to hear what you think about Folly Park, reach out anytime on social media or email at As always, thanks for being here.. And thanks for listening. — Support this podcast:
