The Summer Girls
A Lowcountry Summer NovelLarge Print - 2013
Sea Breeze is Marietta Muir's ancestral summer home. Her granddaughters once adored vacations there, but it's been years since they've visited. Mamaw fears once she is gone, the family bonds will fray. Marietta drops a subtle promise of loot -- pearl necklaces, priceless antique furniture, even the house -- to lure her "summer girls" back to the low country. For years, Carson Muir has drifted, never really settling, certain only that a life without the ocean is a life half lived. Adrift and penniless in California, Carson is the first to return to Sea Breeze, wondering where things went wrong . . . until the sea she loves brings her a minor miracle. Her astonishing bond with a dolphin helps Carson renew her relationships with her sisters and face the haunting memories of her ill-fated father. As the rhythms of the island open her heart, Carson begins to imagine the next steps toward her future. In this heartwarming novel, the first in a trilogy, three sisters discover the true treasure Sea Breeze offers as surprising truths are revealed, mistakes forgiven, and precious connections made that will endure long beyond one summer.
