This Story Is Sweet

Publisher's Summary

Luanne Rice, like Anne Rivers Siddons, has an uncanny ability to convey a family’s sweetest joys and its darkest secrets. Firefly Beach is a poignant story of two people struggling to move beyond the tragedy that links their lives.

As a child, Caroline Renwick watches, horrified, while a desperate man kills himself. After she learns that the man has a young son, Joe, Caroline begins writing to him, and they become close pen pals. But several years later, when Joe is told the reason for his father’s death, he turns away from her.

Now, meeting as adults at Caroline’s ancestral home, they have a chance to confront and heal that old wound. But what will be the emotional cost?

Set on the picturesque New England coast, Firefly Beach captures the magic of a summer that changes a woman and her family forever. Narrator Alexandra O’Karma infuses this novel with a special glow, enhancing each fateful mood and moment.

Terrble narrator

What disappointed you about Firefly Beach?

The narrator is so terrible I can't even finish the book. Usually if I don't like the narrator the story is good enough that I forget about it and just get lost in the book. Not so with this book. It grieves me to say such awful things. Perhaps if it were a better narrator the book would have been more enjoyable. The book was pretty boring though. I made a mistake in not listening to the sample.
