Firefly Beach 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.

    Artist Dana Underhill has always been a free spirit, traveling the world, filling her canvases with the mysterious colors of the seas she and her sister have sailed since childhood. Then on a calm, moonlit night an inexplicable “accident” occurs and Dana is called home to Hubbard’s Point to become a mother to her two young nieces, a challenge unlike any she’s ever known. As Dana and the girls struggle to begin a new life - and to find the truth about what happened to Dana’s sister and brother-in-law - help comes in the person of an old childhood friend.

    A face on a poster, a name in the news, an inexplicable tragedy. A promising young man goes out one warm summer evening and is found dead - murdered - less than 24 hours later. No motive. No clues. No answers. Most people reflect briefly on the disturbing headlines, perhaps say a silent prayer of safely removed sympathy, and go on with their lives.
