About the Author

After playing hooky one day in the seventh grade to read Gone With the Wind, Karen White knew she wanted to be a writer—or become Scarlett O'Hara. In spite of these aspirations, Karen pursued a degree in business and graduated cum laude with a BS in Management from Tulane University. Ten years later, after leaving the business world, she fulfilled her dream of becoming a writer and wrote her first book. In the Shadow of the Moon was published in August, 2000. This book was nominated for the prestigious RITA award in 2001 in two separate categories. Her books have since been nominated for numerous national contests including another RITA, the Georgia Author of the Year Award and in 2008 won the National Readers’ Choice Award for Learning to Breathe.

Karen currently writes what she refers to as ‘grit lit’—southern women’s fiction—and has recently expanded her horizons into writing a mystery series set in Charleston. Her tenth novel, The Lost Hours, will be released in trade paperback by New American Library, a division of Penguin Publishing Group, in April 2009.

Karen hails from a long line of Southerners but spent most of her growing up years in London, England and is a graduate of the American School in London. She currently lives near Atlanta, Georgia with her husband and two teenaged children, and a spoiled Havanese dog (who appears in several of her books), Quincy. When not writing, she spends her time reading, singing, playing piano, chauffeuring children and avoiding cooking.

More About the Author

I grew up being a voracious reader and it was a natural step to turn my interest to writing. I have published 19 award-winning and bestselling novels including my latest release, THE SOUND OF GLASS, a multi-generational story of love, loss and mystery set deep in the South Carolina Lowcountry of Beaufort, South Carolina. THE SOUND OF GLASS, was released by New American Library, a division of Penguin Random House Publishing Group, on May 12, 2015.

I write what others have termed "grit-lit"--southern women's fiction, as well as a contemporary paranormal mystery series set in Charleston, South Carolina. All of my books are set in the US South, and feature a female protagonist at a crossroads in her life.

I live near Atlanta, Georgia with my husband, two children, and the cutest Havanese dog, Quincy, whom readers may recognize as General Lee in the Tradd Street series. Quincy recently became a big brother as the adorably cute Sophie Belle, also a Havanese, joined our family.

Up next: the re-release of my first two books IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON and WHISPERS OF GOODBYE (dates to be determined) and the collaborative novel, THE FORGOTTEN ROOM to be released on January 19, 2016, written by yours truly along with the very talented Lauren Willig and Beatriz Williams!

Format: Paperback
Well, she's done it again. Bestselling author Karen White is back with another page-turner that men and women are sure to be able to pick up, read and enjoy---and then feel compelled to discuss.

SEA CHANGE takes us into the lives of characters who are all trying to find their way and live their lives the best way they know how, yet come to realize that they can only be who they are when they face all that they are.

We get to meet Ava, a woman who has earned a great deal of respect in her profession as a midwife, but has longings of her own that she can't seem to shake. It's not until she finds love for herself in Matthew that she believes that all of the puzzle pieces will come together for her---but it is really at that time that she discovers more than she could have ever imagined.

Combining the past with the present in such a way that a skilled storyteller can, White is able to weave tragedy and heartbreak from centuries ago together with a modern story that is sure to have you guessing until the end. Not to give too much of the story away, I do feel as though one of the greatest lessons I took away from the book was that our lives and the things that happen to us do take place for a reason. Many times it is just up to us to figure out what that reason is and be able to deal with the aftermath that may come.

Showcasing once again why readers of all genres love her, Karen White's SEA CHANGE shows the connections we all have to the past and how it affects each day of our lives.

Sea Change is a very good book and keeps you guessing at every turn. Just when you think you have it figured out, you find out that you don't. I loved how Ms. White weaves the story between modern day and back to the War of 1812. The author does an amazing job with character development and the secrets that they hold. I would really recommend that you pick up this new release.

I have only read a few of Karen White's books and have enjoyed them for the most part. Her characters and historical input are beautifully written and spell binding but I find her books to be too descriptive. A little goes a long way!! In Sea Change I found myself skimming through pages to try to move the story along and by the middle of the book I found myself skipping all the chapters written by Gloria. I think incorporating three different women's point of view was too much. This book was a bit of a disappointment.

After seeing all the reviews from others, I guess I am the only one that was totally disappointed in her newest book. I ordered it a month before it was due to be released and I was anxiously waiting for it to arrive. I have read every one of her books and thoroughly enjoyed them all. She is a marvelous writer.

However, I just finished this one and I unfortunately have to say, I did not like it at all. It seemed to ramble on and on with repetitive sentences. Yes, there were some interesting moments. But, for the most part, I didn't like jumping from one generation to another and continually back and forth from one person to another. I had to work hard trying to tie everything in, and at the end, thinking I had wasted my time in reading it. All this detailed information about the research that was discovered was boring. Except for Pamela, her characters didn't have the charm that I had seen in her past books. For me, it was exhausting reading and I had to keep putting it down because of loss of interest.

I feel this book didn't have the same quality that her other books have delivered. It left me with out the joy or the lingering imagination that her other books provided. With the others, I didn't want the story to end. With this one, I couldn't wait for it to end. It seemed like she tried to jam too many character's lives into a story that seemed to be a big-to-do about nothing. Most of it was non believable to me. In trying to bring all the characters together, there were too many clues and details that bogged down the story for me. And when I finished.........that was it. Nothing memorable about it.

First let me say that Ms. White captivated me with her Tradd Street series and I LOVED the first two books in that series. The third book in that series felt forced and the ending left the reader wondering why the book was written. It felt incomplete and I was very disappointed. I decided to give the book Sea Change a try even though I was disappointed in the 3rd Tradd Street book. I am SO GLAD that I did. Ms. White has really developed her craft as a writer. You can see that she has matured to a new level of writing with this book. I felt compelled to finish this book within a day or two of first beginning the book. It sincerely captured the characters and transported the readers to a different time and place effortlessly.

Ms. White really has an award winning book with Sea Change. I look forward to reading more books by Ms. White in the future. She has a definite talent for writing this type of literature!

I am sorry to say that I found this story very tedious and drawn out. Could not get "into" it at all.
I generally read her novels as fast as I can because I find them so interesting and entertaining. But, this one just did not work for me. The Grandmother was very interesting but that was about all.
