About this item
About the BookTwo women, two wars, and a bookstore in the lowcountry that brings their stories together in unexpected ways--this latest Southern novel is from the bestselling author of "The Memory of Water."
Book SynopsisFrom the New York Times bestselling author of the Tradd Street novels comes a story of old wounds and second chances, set in the small South Carolina town of Folly Beach.
To most people, Folly Beach is simply the last barrier island before reaching the great Atlantic. To some, it's a sanctuary for lost souls... When Emmy Hamilton's mother encourages her to buy the local book store, Folly's Finds, she hopes it will distract her daughter from the loss of her husband. But the seller has one condition that changes everything: Emmy must allow Lulu, the late owner's difficult elderly sister, to continue selling her bottle trees from its back yard. For the most part Emmy ignores Lulu as she sifts through the love letters she finds in a box of used books. But the more she discovers about the letters, the more she understands Lulu. As details of a possible murder and a mysterious disappearance during WWII are revealed, the two women discover that circumstances beyond their control have brought them together, here on Folly Beach. And it is here that their war-ravaged hearts can find hope again...
Review QuotesPraise for New York Times bestselling author Karen White "There is a rhythm to the writing of Karen White. It has a pace, a beat, a cadence that is all its own."--The Huffington Post "The ultimate voice of women's fiction."--Fresh Fiction "White's dizzying carousel of a plot keeps those pages turning, so much so that the book can [be]--and should be--finished in one afternoon, interrupted only by a glass of sweet iced tea."--Oprah.com "This is storytelling of the highest order: the kind of book that leaves you both deeply satisfied and aching for more."--Beatriz Williams, New York Times bestselling author of Tiny Little Thing "Readers will find White's prose an uplifting experience as she is a truly gifted storyteller."--Las Vegas Review-Journal
