It was impossible to remember how gorgeous the Lowcountry was. It never changed and everyone depended on that.
Newly graduated from college, Beth Hayes has worlds to conquer. But her grand ambitions are put on hold when she's elected by the family elders to house-sit the Island Gamble—ghosts and all.
But there is much about life and her family's past that Beth doesn't understand. And her plans to rest and rejuvenate—to bask in memory and the magic of white clapboards and shimmering blue waters— begin dangerously unraveling when she falls in love.
Still, everything here happens for a reason—and disappointment, betrayal, even tragedy are more easily handled when surrounded by beloved family and loyal friends.

Whether you were away from the Lowcountry for a week or for years, it was impossible to remember how gorgeous it was. It never changed and everyone depended on that.

But notions of travel, graduate study, and writing the great American novel will have to be postponed. Beth is elected by the elders to house-sit the Island Gamble. Surrounded by the shimmering blue waters of the Atlantic, the white clapboards, silver tin roof, and confessional porch have seen and heard the stories of generations of Hamiltons. But will the ghosts of the Island Gamble be watching over Beth?
If everything happens for a reason, then Beth returns to Sullivans Island to learn that betrayal and tragedy are most easily handled when you surround yourself with loyal family and friends in a magical place that loves you so much it wants to claim you as its own.About the Author:
