Thank you for the wonderful review She-Reads.org! This article was written by Marybeth Whalen, one of our favorite authors, and Ariel Lawhon for Independent Bookstore Day. She-Reads.org is a great blog about books, and these ladies know books! Make sure you check out their wonderful, funny writing and you might even discover a new book or two!
We are big fans of Marybeth Whalen’s here at Pelican Bookstore! She has done signings with us at Silver Coast Winery, and she writes about our beloved Sunset Beach. So, needless to say, we were ecstatic when we saw her new book was coming out soon. This one is called The Bridge Tender and like one of our favorites The Mailbox, this one is also set in Sunset Beach! Here’s the description from her blog:
“Emily must realize that her dreams didn’t have to die with her first love. When Emily Shaw, a young widow, learns that her late husband’s last surprise for her involves returning to Sunset Beach, North Carolina, to realize an old dream of theirs, she reluctantly embarks on a summer of discovery in the midst of grief. There, in the oasis of the beach community, she meets a host of townspeople with their own broken dreams and unexpected situations. As the island citizens divide over the fate of a nostalgic bridge, Emily happens upon a man who just may be the one to restore her faith in dreams, hope, and possibly love.”
We are excited for this one! Hopefully Marybeth will come to Sunset Beach again this year for another signing. We’ll keep you posted!
