Review: The Beach House by Mary Alice Monroe
A slower paced life where the important things in life are truly revealed; God's blessings, friends, family, the vast sea, time with your own thoughts, and nature. I have to admit, the first 1/3 of this book was a little slow for me. However, it picked up and I became transported to this small isle with a sense of peace and gladness. I really learned a lot about the Loggerhead Turtles and the sense of purpose it gave these women. Great summer read! PS. Can't wait to get a hammock!
SYNOPSIS by Barnes & Noble
Caretta Rutledge thought she’d left her Southern roots and troubled family far behind. But an unusual request from her mother-coming just as her own life is spinning out of control-has Cara heading back to the scenic Lowcountry of her childhood summers. Before long, the rhythms of the island open her heart in wonderful ways as she repairs the family beach house, becomes a bona fide “turtle lady” and renews old acquaintances long thought lost. But it is in reconnecting with her mother that she will learn life’s most precious lessons-true love involves sacrifice, family is forever and the mistakes of the past can be forgiven.
RATING 3 1/2 STARS
