Publisher's Summary

A beautiful debut novel we believe will be a hit with fans of contemporary southern authors such as Patti Callahan Henry, Mary Alice Munroe, Dorothea Benton Franks, Deborah Smith, and others. The book has gotten rave endorsements from authors Terry Kay, Sharyn McCrumb, and Joshilyn Jackson.

A ballet star loses everything when a car accident ends her career and also results in her miscarriage. Devastated, she retreats to the Georgia coast, where her seclusion does not last long, thanks to the gentle influence of the marsh/river folk - their traditions, music, and beliefs. Befriended by a lonely little girl, the former ballerina slowly finds a new life for herself and new values. Mainly female voices, ranging from a light, sophisticated southern accent to a more earthy coastal drawl.

Main character indulges in extreme introspection

The main character indulges in meandering and endless introspection through the entire book often overwhelming the plot but the story is somewhat saved by the existence of other nicely written characters. I wanted to stop reading this book several times but kept on because I really wanted to know how things turned out for the young girl in the story. Not sure if it was worth it.
