Folly Beach, South Carolina, with its glistening beaches, laid-back Southern charm, and enticing Gullah tradition, is the land of Cate Coopers childhood, the place where all the ghosts of her past roam freely. Now, thanks to a newly deceased husband whose financial and emotional perfidy has left her homeless and broke, shes returning to this lovely strip of coast.
Once, another woman found comfort here: an artist, writer, and sometime colleague of the revered George Gershwin. With her beloved husband, DuBose, Dorothy Heyward enjoyed the greatest moments of her life at Folly. Though the Heywards are long gone, their passion and spirit linger in every ocean breeze.
To her surprise, Cate is about to discover that you can go home again, for Folly holds the possibility of unexpected fulfillmentnot just the memories of the girl she was, but the promise of the woman shes always wanted to become. . . .
