"There is no way to describe Monroe’s writing style other than to say it is uniquely wonderful. She has a heart for the lowcountry and the talent to bring it to life." (Huffington Post )

"I feel like I’ve struck the jackpot this spring. Mary Alice Monroe has decided to add one more book to her Lowcountry Summer series. And, folks, I’m here to tell you it is the BEST of the four!!" (Maurice on Books )

"The story flows as smooth as silk." (Charleston City Paper )

“Monroe creates four beautifully drawn, strong, vulnerable heroines each grappling with her own personal questions, choices, doubts and thoughts about family, commitment, relationships and the future. Wonderfully written with a poignancy and nostalgia that will warm readers’ hearts, this story and its well-crafted, engaging plot will keep readers captivated until the last page.” (RT Book Reviews )

"Readers who enjoy Monroe's blend of fiction that weaves family drama by the seaside and environmental issues will want to pick up a copy." (The Chicago Tribune on The Summer's End )

"It is hard to describe the beauty of Monroe's work.The words on the pages flow from the author's eyes to create a world of rareenchantment. Next, Monroe's brain assembles a plot that moves the charactersfrom one amazing event to another. Then from Monroe's heart comes the passionfor the story, one that is rich with love and depth.” (Jackie K. Cooper, The Huffington Post, on The Summer's End )

"To describe Monroe’s books is like trying to describe the Lowcountry itself. There is warmth and beauty found on every page, and it is simple yet complex in its nature. Storms may rage in the night, but morning always follows." (Myrtle Beach Online on The Summer's End )

"If you are searching for a great beach read—friendship, family, a touch of ecology and romance—well, then, this is the book for you... keep tissues by your side as you read this book." (Joan Leotta on The Summer's End )

"The Summer Wind makes for an excellent beach read this summer." (The Literary Housewife, on The Summer Wind )

"Mary Alice Monroe has taken the rich waters of the Atlantic Coast as her own field of dreams. In The Summer Girls,she sings a song of praise to the bottle-nosed dolphins that bring so much joy to the men and women who gaze at the creeks and rivers of the low country each evening. Like all her books, The Summer Girls is a call to arms." (New York Times bestselling author Pat Conroy )

"The Summer Girls is more than just a beautifully written, moving portrayal of three sisters finding themselves and each other after years of separation. It's also an important book that deals head-on with significant issues so skillfully woven into the narrative that I often stopped to consider the import of what I'd just read. If you're a dedicated environmentalist, this book is a must-read. If you're just someone who enjoys a good story, you'll get that, too, and much more." (New York Times bestselling author Cassandra King )

"The Summer Girls conveys sound environmental messages through a captivating story of how the ocean and a charismatic dolphin reunite sisters in the alluring ecological setting of the Lowcountry of South Carolina. The story resonates on a personal level and, moreover, delivers a powerful reminder of the importance of protecting dolphins and the environment in which they live." (Patricia Fair, Director, Marine Mammal Program, NOAA )

“In the bestselling tradition of Kathryn Stockett’s The Help, Mary Alice Monroe skillfully weaves together issues of class, women’s rights, and domestic abuse set in the tumultuous South during the 1970s. . . . Beautifully wrought, and rich with keen insight . . . an unforgettable tale of marriage, resilience, and one woman’s private strength.” (Bookreporter)

“Magical! Mary Alice Monroe's writing is always sensitive and true, and as inspiring as the natural wonder about which she writes. This luminous tale—set in the South Carolina Lowcountry that we both love so deeply—was hard to put down.” (Dorothea Benton Frank )

It's about family, finding yourself, getting through bad issues that could weigh you down, and enjoying the ride with the warm embrace of family. And there's a wild dolphin who helps heal the pain but finds his own. This book has everything--sense of place, family, strong characters, romance,a love of dolphins and more. This is BETTER than a beach read; this is a great book club book to discuss! Can't wait for the next in the trilogy. thanks, Mary Alice!" (First Reads )
