Grace Greene, USA Today best-selling author of Beach Rental, The Memory of Butterflies, and the Wildflower House Series, brings us A Barefoot Tide, the first novel in a two-book series - the Barefoot Tides Series - set along the crystal coast of North Carolina in the small town of Emerald Isle.
A Barefoot Tide takes the listener from rural Virginia to coastal Carolina as Lilliane Moore leaves the forests and rolling hills of her rural Virginia hometown, Cub Creek, to accept a temporary job as a companion to an elderly man who lives at the beach. It's a risky move that's out of character for her, but her 30s are passing quickly - she feels like she's closing in on 40 fast - plus she's got a hole in her roof and no AC.
The big payday she's been promised for this short-term assignment will fix a lot of what's wrong in her life. The job is at the beach in North Carolina, in a place called Emerald Isle at the end of the Outer Banks. She's never seen the ocean before and she'd like to, but what's the catch? Because there's always a catch, isn't there?
Taking a job in a home with someone she doesn't know and so far from her own home may be a risk - but the biggest risk for Lilliane may be the unexpected, including leaving the home and hometown to which her heart and past are irrevocably tied, and to which she must return - no matter what happens while she's away.
