Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ferris Beach is a place where excitement and magic coexist. Or so Mary Katherine "Katie" Burns, the only child of middle-aged Fred and Cleva Burns, believes. Shy and self-conscious, she daydreams about Ferris Beach, where her beautiful cousin, Angela, leads a romantic, mysterious life.

It is the early 1970s, and when the land across the road from the Burns's historic house is sold to developers, Misty Rhodes--also from Ferris Beach--and her flamboyant parents move into the nearest newly built split-level. In contrast to Katie's composed, reserved, practical mother, Misty and her mother are everything Katie wants to be: daring, outrageous, fun. The two girls become inseparable, sharing every secret, every dream--until one fateful Fourth of July, when their lives change in a way they could never have imagined.

In this classic McCorkle novel, the author's shrewd grasp of human nature creates characters that resonate with truth and emotion, and a story perfect for mothers and daughters to share and cherish.

Synopsis:

"A really fine read. . . . A thoroughly believable picture of growing up in a middle-class small-town family in the New South".--"The New York Times Book Review". "Whimsically entertaining and dramatically compelling".--"The Boston Globe". "One of the best in the new generation of Southern writers".--"Atlanta Journal & Constitution".
