Product description


"A story as rich as a coastal summer...Dark secrets, heartache, a magnificent South Carolina setting and a great love story."--New York Times bestselling author Deborah Smith

"An engaging read with a delicious taste of the mysterious."--New York Times bestselling author Haywood Smith

More Praise 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

"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

"White captures the true essence of Charleston by intertwining the sights and smells of the historic town with an enchanting story filled with ghostly spirits, love, and forgiveness...a once-in-a-lifetime series."--Fresh Fiction

"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
