Book Bunch

Book for September:


The Beach Trees by Karen White


Description from Amazon:

From the time she was twelve, Julie Holt knew what a random tragedy can do to a family. At that tender age, her little sister disappeared-never to be found. It was a loss that slowly eroded the family bonds she once relied on. As an adult with a prestigious job in the arts, Julie meets a struggling artist who reminds her so much of her sister, she can't help feeling protective. It is a friendship that begins a long and painful process of healing for Julie, leading her to a house on the Gulf Coast, ravaged by hurricane Katrina, and to stories of family that take her deep into the past.

    I would really enjoy this book and meeting but I decided that the weather is just too fabulous to be inside reading! I'll be hiking tomorrow! I hope to meet you all soon, and share a good book.
