Emily must realize that her dreams didn’t have to die with her first love. When Emily Shaw, a young widow, learns that her late husband’s last surprise for her involves returning to Sunset Beach, North Carolina, to realize an old dream of theirs, she reluctantly embarks on a summer of discovery in the midst of grief. There, in the oasis of the beach community, she meets a host of townspeople with their own broken dreams and unexpected situations.

I read The Mailbox and loved it! So when I requested this novel I didn’t put two and two together and figure out that this novel was by the same author. Well, once I did figure it out I was not disappointed! This was a fantastic novel. I loved this novel so very much. If you love the beach you will love this novel since the author makes you feel as if you are right there sitting on the dock with your feet in the water. This novel moves fast and does not disappoint!
I highly recommend this novel!
