Set in the steamy, stormy landscape of South Carolina, Sullivan's Island marks the debut of an exquisitely talented writer--and tells the unforgettable story of one woman's courageous journey toward truth.

Born and raised on idyllic Sullivan's Island, Susan Hayes navigated through her turbulent childhood with humor, spunk, and characteristic Southern sass. But years later, she is a conflicted woman with an unfaithful husband, a sometimes resentful teenage daughter, and a heart that aches with painful, poignant memories. And as Susan faces her uncertain future, she realizes she must go back to her past. To the beachfront house where her sister welcomes her with open arms. To a place haunted by long-held secrets and devastating betrayals. To the only place she can truly call home...

A very enjoyable read - especially if you've been to Charleston or Sullivan's Island. This first novel is a real page-turner. Hilarious in parts, spiritual in others, with a main character you will love. Susan is very feisty. Her relationship with the family housekeeper Livvie is beautiful. Livvie helped her grow, cope and develop much more than her real mother ever did. This book often reminded me of Prince of Tides. Also for readers who enjoyed The Help.
