Publisher Description

Early on the morning of her eleventh birthday, on the beach beside her North Carolina home, Daria Cato receives an unbelievable gift from the sea—an abandoned newborn baby. When the infant’s identity cannot be uncovered, she is adopted by Daria’s loving family. But her silent secrets continue to haunt Daria.

Now, twenty years later, Shelly has grown into an unusual, ethereal young woman whom Daria continues to protect. But when Rory Taylor, a friend from Daria’s childhood and now a television producer, returns at Shelly’s request to do a story about the circumstances surrounding her birth, something precarious shifts in the small town of Kill Devil Hills.

The more questions Rory asks, the more unsettled the tiny community becomes, as closely guarded secrets and the sins of that long-ago summer begin to surface. Piece by piece, the mystery of summer’s child is being exposed, a mystery that no one involved—not Shelly, Daria, not even Rory—is prepared to face.

No. One granny ,

Great twist!

I really like the story and the twist and for that I would have given the book 5 stars! I'm only giving it 4 because of a few really ugly bad words and a few explicit sex paragraphs. Neither were needed to enhance the story at the time and were very unnecessary. The author needs to rethink using those and just have a good clean book! I'm not going to purchase another book from the author because of those issues and it's a shame because I really did like the book!

sdavan ,

A must read.

Really enjoy the book and the ending was a big surprise!

uprise24 ,

This is a simple book....

....but after a slow start, I found it more & more engaging. I've read and enjoyed this author's books and I would recommend it to people who enjoy this genre. If you, somehow, don't enjoy it, look me up and I'll give you five bucks😉
