Emmy is at first resistant. So much has already changed. But after finding love letters and an image of a beautiful bottle tree in a box of used books from Folly's Finds, she decides to take the plunge.

I loved this book! I got really attached to the characters. I pretty much guessed the plot line early on but I still couldn't put it down and was very interested in how all of the elements would play out. Loved the unique third person POV too. Really helps me get in the mood for summer in sc!

I am finding this book to be really interesting in the fact as it "studies" multigenerational relationshps in a small town. It is interesting to look at how the past impacts the present. Oh, this book was SO sad at the end. Broke my heart!

I had never read a book by Karen White before, but if they are all like this one, I will be reading more. One of the things that I really like about my on-line book clubs is that I end up meeting people who can introduce me to wonderful new authors. Folly Beach, South Carolina is a small island who...
