Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author and “skilled storyteller who never lets her readers down” (Huffington Post) returns to her beloved Beach House series with this “authentic, generous, and heartfelt” (Mary Kay Andrews, New York Times best-selling author) tale of new beginnings, resilience, and one family’s enduring love.  

Cara Rutledge returns to her Southern home on the idyllic Isle of Palms. Everything is comfortingly the same, yet each detail is rife with painful memories. Only through reconnecting with family, friends, and the rhythms of the lowcountry can Cara release the hold of the past and open herself to the possibility of a new love, career, and hope for the future.

Meanwhile, her niece Linnea, a recent college graduate who doesn’t know where her life will take her, leaves her historic home in Charleston, with all its entitlement and expectations, and heads to her aunt’s beach house. On the island, she is part of the freer, natural ocean lifestyle she loves, rejoining the turtle team, learning to surf, and falling in love. Remembering the lessons of her beloved grandmother, Lovie, the original “turtle lady”, Linnea rediscovers a meaningful purpose to her life and finds the courage she needs to break from tradition.

In this heartwarming novel, three generations of the Rutledge family gather together to find the strength, love, and commitment to break destructive family patterns and to forge new bonds that will endure long beyond one summer reunion.

TOT

TOT! Tired of Turtles. At first working the turtles in was interesting, five books later I am tired of turtles. This storyline was very weak and at times sickly sweet. This needs a Do Over!

Painful to listen to...

I’m 61 and this author (& narrator) seem woefully out-of-it while trying way too hard to be with it.

These books are an absolute Treasure

I pre-ordered the last book in the series but it's not out yet so sadly I have to start listening to something else until its release. I'm just so in love with these books. Thank you again for a very sweet and touching story so easy to relate to. Helping in my own life in so many ways.

Great summer read!

I like that the story wasn’t primarily a live story, but about family come full circle with a little romance in the side.

Dull and predictable

ONG, bought this with one of my credits. I made it to the end and it was possibly the most boring book of the 10s of thousands of books I have read or listened to on audible.
Total waste of money and time.
