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.

"Turtle Summer, A Journal for my Daughter" IS the journal composed in the novel.

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

About the Author:

Mary Alice Monroe is the NY Times best-selling author of ten adult novels, including: The Beach House, Sweetgrass, and Skyward. The sequel to The Beach House, Swimming Lessons, is being released by MIRA Books in April 2007. Mary Alice s first children s book, Turtle Summer: A Journal for my Daughter is a companion book to that adult novel. Monroe draws themes for her books from nature and the parallels with human nature and she is actively involved with several environmental groups. She is on the board of the South Carolina Aquarium (home of the SC Sea Turtle Hospital). Her experiences with wildlife provide the inspiration for her novels and children s book.
