Set in the steamy, stormy landscape of South Carolina, Sullivan's Island tells the unforgettable story of one woman's courageous journey toward truth.

Born and raised on idyllic Sullivan's Island, Susan Hayes navigated through her turbulent childhood with humor, spunk, and characteristic Southern sass. But years later, she is a conflicted woman with an unfaithful husband, a sometimes resentful teenage daughter, and a heart that aches with painful, poignant memories.

To the only place she can truly call home.

Review: Sullivan's Island (Lowcountry Tales #1)

User Review  - Betsy - Goodreads

This wasn't one of my favorites of hers.I don't think she developed her characters as much as in her other pieces. Things would happen quickly. You can tell that Pat Conroy is an influence on her writing. Much of the story reminded me of story plots from his books. Read full review

Review: Sullivan's Island (Lowcountry Tales #1)

User Review  - Hayley - Goodreads

Beautifully written but it lacked purpose. I didn't feel like it was wrapped up well. Too bad too because it could have been good. In the end I wondered why the author wanted the reader to look into this piece of the character's life...what was the purpose? Read full review
