    When Jimmy McMullen, a fireman, is killed in the line of duty, his wife, Jackie, and ten-year-old son, Charlie, are devastated. Charlie idolized his dad, and now the outgoing boy has become quiet and reserved. Trusting in the healing power of family, Jackie decides to return to her childhood home on Sullivan's Island. Awaiting them is Annie Britt, the matriarch who has kept the porch lights on to welcome them. Thrilled to have her family back again, Annie promises to make their visit perfect - even though relations between mother and daughter have never been smooth.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Porch Lights to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print book, but I did love the audio edition. It was produced very well.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The island itself was my favorite character. The flavor, tempo and sense of a slower and gracious beach style of living was captured so well.


    What about Robin Miles’s performance did you like?

    Very well read. Her delivery was animated with each character well defined. There was never any question about which character was speaking nor about the emotion that the character was experiencing.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    How the pain of a family's loss is healed by the magic of a low country beach summer.
