Paperback: 448 pages
Publisher: NAL;(April 5, 2016)
Two years after the death of her husband, Merritt Heyward receives unexpected news—Cal’s family home in Beaufort, South Carolina, bequeathed by his reclusive grandmother, now belongs to Merritt.
In Beaufort, the secrets of Cal’s unspoken-of past reside among the pluff mud and jasmine of the ancestral Heyward home on the Bluff. This unknown legacy, now Merritt’s, will change and define her as she navigates her new life—a life complicated by the arrival of her too young stepmother and ten-year-old half brother.
Soon, in this house of strangers, Merritt is forced into unraveling the Heyward family past as she faces her own fears and finds the healing she needs in the salt air of the Low country.
I have read several books by Karen White and enjoyed them all. She has written many more but at times when I read reviews they just aren’t for me, but, the ones I have chosen have been very good and I even have one on my wish list yet!
This is a very touching story of a woman beginning her life over again after the death of her husband. She inherits her mother-in-laws old home in South Carolina and decides to start life again there, and moves from Maine to South Carolina.
Many interesting life stores rolled into one in this book, along with a love story. There is more then one kind of love and there are more then one type in this book. Typically I am not a love story reader but some have the knack to pull me in and this is one of them.
I enjoyed the book and hope one day to get another book of hers to read.
