Three sisters reunite on Sullivan’s Island off the coast of South Carolina after years of separation in this heartwarming first novel in a new trilogy from a beloved author.
80-year-old Marietta Muir is a dowager of Charleston society who has retired to her historic summer home on Sullivan’s Island. At the onset of summer, Marietta - "Mamaw" - seeks to gather her three granddaughters - Carson, Eudora, and Harper - with the intent to reunite them after years apart.

"[Anyone who] enjoys such fine Southern voices as Pat Conroy will add the talented Monroe to their list of favorites." (Booklist)
I loved the storyline and the characters but did not care for Mary Alice Monroe's performance. Her fake southern accent and her inconsistent pronunciation of "Mamaw" really took away from my listening enjoyment.

There wasn't really an ending, the story lines of characters were left open--almost forcing one to purchase Book 2 for completion.
Anyone - she is a good writer and should stick to writing. Reading was lack luster, comparable to psychology 101 in large college auditorium. Monotone. This past month I have listened to Catherine Tabor and Amy Rubinate either would have made this so much more enjoyable.
None, the women need to be expanded on and not so predictable. While listening not so much "Carson said" Dora said" etc...
Although wondering where the other sisters wonder, not sure I can listen to another book with same narrator.
This is my first listen with this author. While I think she is a good writer she didn't keep my attention and it seemed slow. I like all the characters. The setting is good. The narration is good. It just didn't grab my attention. I think I may have become tainted by so many fast action type books and chick lit usually moves fast. At the time I purchased this one I purchased The Beach House also....I am going to wait awhile to try it.
please tell the reader Southern pronounce Mamaw as Mam-maw not Ma-Ma. as someone who had a Mam-maw it is aggravating to hear.
i lobe s good book about life lessons. especially when it's places in beautiful places like the sea
I've encountered multiple editing errors, the production team of this performance dropped the ball. However, the story has made up for the mistakes. Simple and sweet, enduring and believable characters.
I loved the story line with all the different characters. I would have liked a little more closure with some of them, like Harper who is basically absent for the last quarter of the book. I'm assuming the rest of the series will deal with the other characters more. The audio was good aside from multiple glitches where words or phrases were repeated.
