Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestselling author Karen White delivers a novel of two generations of sisters and secrets set in the stunning South Carolina Lowcountry.

Eleanor Murray will always remember her childhood on Edisto Island, where her late father, a local shrimper, shared her passion for music. Now her memories of him are all that tempers the guilt she feels over the accident that put her sister in a wheelchair—and the feelings she harbors for her sisters husband.

To help support her sister, Eleanor works at a Charleston investment firm during the day, but she escapes into her music, playing piano at a neighborhood bar. Until the night her enigmatic boss walks in and offers her a part-time job caring for his elderly aunt, Helena, back on Edisto. For Eleanor, its a chance to revisit the place where she was her happiest—and to share her love of music with grieving Helena, whose sister recently died under mysterious circumstances.

An island lush with sweetgrass and salt marshes, Edisto has been a peaceful refuge for Helena, who escaped with her sister from war-torn Hungary in 1944. The sisters were well-known on the island, where they volunteered in their church and community. But now Eleanor will finally learn the truth about their past: secrets that will help heal her relationship with her own sister—and set Eleanor free....

Jillian, divorced, pregnant, accompanied only by her small daughter, Gracie, arrives on Pawley's Island to begin rebuilding her shattered life. Her grandmother's newly renovated house is for sale and she buys it for a song. The house next door that once belonged to the parents of her best friend Lauren is also being renovated. Lauren's parents moved away after her disappearance years ago.Now with amazing and supernatural insight Gracie begins to talk to an imaginary friend named Lauren. Intrigue--just who is the lady who carries a doll in a baby carrier and cares for it a if it is a real child. Mystery--what happened to Lauren? Is she dead or alive? Romance--the handsome man next door turns out to be a childhood friend. Jillian to discover who she was meant to be.

I greatly enjoyed The Color of Light as page after page built the story of Jillian's trying to work her way through the devastation of an abusive childhood to become the creative loved woman she was meant to be.
