From the Author:

Dear Reader,

In my adult novel, "Swimming Lessons," the mother assembles a journal of photographs and sketches for her young daughter depicting the summer they spent together tending turtles during the loggerhead nesting season.

This journal is dedicated to all grandmothers, mothers, and daughters. Join us in our world as Turtle Ladies and share the beauty and magic of a turtle summer! Mary Alice Monroe
