The New York Times bestselling author of the Tradd Street novels explores a Southern family’s buried history, which will change the life of the woman who unearths it, secret by shattering secret.
Two years after the death of her husband, Merritt Heyward receives unexpected news—Cal’s family home in Beaufort, South Carolina, bequeathed by his reclusive grandmother, now belongs to Merritt.
In Beaufort, the secrets of Cal’s unspoken-of past reside among the pluff mud and jasmine of the ancestral Heyward home on the Bluff. This unknown legacy, now Merritt’s, will change and define her as she navigates her new life—a life complicated by the arrival of her too young stepmother and ten-year-old half brother.
Soon, in this house of strangers, Merritt is forced into unraveling the Heyward family past as she faces her own fears and finds the healing she needs in the salt air of the Lowcountry.

A great summer read, any time of year
I’m a long time fan of Karen White and this story did not disappoint. But I have two problems with it and they are somewhat spoiler in nature. So don’t read on if you don’t want the story spoiled. The first has to do with why or how Cal managed to track down Merritt and if it was part of a nefarious plan to exact revenge. The second unanswered question for me was why Cal called his mother a murderer. She had nothing to do with the deaths of anyone. Other than these hangover like dangling unsolved questions I loved the book.
Love Love Love this book!
I didn’t think I’d like any book/s more than the Tradd St Series, but this is my new Favorite! I’m going to re-read it and get my own Pink Journal! Absolutely love all the life lessons!
Cant wait for my next Karen White book!
The Sound of Glass
I am still figuring out I feel about this book. Since the characters are still sitting with me, and I find myself caring about them and thinking about them, it must have been a pretty well written book. I didn’t want it to be finished; I found myself wanting more. It was a emotional read and I am not sure this is the best time for me to write a review. However iBooks won’t let me move from this page until I do!
