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
“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

As Emmy settled into her new life, she uncovered buried secrets about the residents of Folly Beach. My biggest problem with books that focus on the lives of two different women decades apart is that it's always too easy for the woman in the present to discover information about the past. Somehow White overcame this obstacle with ease. Like Lulu's sister, Emmy was also drawn to books, so I accepted it when she found notes in the margins of the old books in her bookstore. The clues were reveled at perfect times and progressed the story naturally. Of course, Emmy wouldn't have been able to heal her broken heart without another male character, and Lulu's great-nephew filled the void perfectly. His relationship with Emmy evolved slowly, which for once, seemed realistic.
There were some great secrets and twists in this book. I was impressed with the writing and strong storylines and can't wait to read more by this author.

Seamlessly interwoven stories.
Lulu--a Nancy Drew wannabe--the character that ties past to present.
Bottle Trees--An African slave tradition to ward off evil spirits--central to both stories.
A brilliant blending of history and mystery...
Secret messages written in book margins...
A wonderful story of bravery, grief, redemption, love, forgiveness, and...learning when to move on.
Not a predictable, mushy, romance novel.
Read it on the beach or in front of a crackling fire...just read it.
I'm very tempted to put a bottle tree in my yard.
I bet you will be, too.
