The Beach Trees by Karen White
The Beach Trees

Darlene Ferland, January 2, 2012

I don't know how I missed this author. Karen White has written a compelling and intricately woven narrative in 'The Beach Trees.' The past and present are brought to life in the characters of Aimee Guidry and Julie Holt. Effortlessly, she gifts her readers with bits of history of the Gulf coaast while entangling their hearts with rich, full characters who will remain long after the book is closed. New Orleans and Biloxi, as well as their tradions, come to life teeming with sights, sounds and smells so engrossing that this book will be read again and again. Thank you First-reads for the opportunity to discover an amazing author . . .
