Sintesi dell'editore

In the powerful and heartwarming conclusion to her best-selling Lowcountry Summer trilogy, New York Times best-selling author Mary Alice Monroe brings her listeners back to the charm and sultry beauty of Sullivan's Island, South Carolina, to reveal how the pull of family bonds and true love is as strong and steady as the tides.

It is summer's end, and Sea Breeze, the family's beloved estate on Sullivan's Island, must be sold. It is an emotional time of transition as Mamaw and the three sisters each must face loss and find a new place in the world.

Harper, the youngest sister, arrives at Sea Breeze intending to stay only a weekend. But a rift with her wealthy, influential mother leaves her without direction or a home. During this remarkable summer, free from her mother's tyranny and with the help of her half sisters, Harper discovers her talents and independent spirit. But summer is ending, and the fate of Sea Breeze hinges on her courage to decide the course of her own life. To do so she must release her insecurities and recognize her newfound strengths. Harper must accept love fully into her life - the love of Mamaw, Carson, and Dora, the love of Sea Breeze and the lowcountry, and most of all the love of a wounded warrior who has claimed her heart.

But Wait - There's More

The third book of a summer with a Grandmother and her three grand-daughters, all half sisters. They have shared the same father (Mamaw's son) but have different mothers. They are all quite different, have bonds that draw them together although at times there are tensions between them.

This book is essentially Harper's one. However each of these books build on one another as the three girls develop and grow as people. It is definitely a series that needs to be read in order as the struggles and challenges go from one book to the next.

Harper has come from a wealthier background compared to the other two girls, yet she has an ice queen for a mother. One who tries to control her and is unable to let her go. Just as well Mamaw is such a warm mothering character or where would Harper be.

In this book the reality of needing to sell Sea Breeze the home that they all love bites in. Each one as well must take the next step in their journey. And that's where The Summer's End brings this phase of their lives to a close, so that they can open on to a new one.

Again I enjoyed the author's narration. While she didn't always have a distinctive voice for each character, her phrasing and understanding of the characters shone through.

I believe there is at least one more in this series, titled Low Country Wedding due to publish May 2016. I wonder whose wedding it will be!

Heartwarming Series

I really loved this series written by Mary Alice Monroe!! And I cannot imagine anyone else narrating it better. She brought the characters to life through her writing and through her perfect vocal differentiation between them. I honestly laughed and cried. I spoke out loud to the characters as if they were real and could hear me. I had hopes for them in the wonderful story line. If you want a story that’s heartwarming about family and the wisdom of those who have lived a long life before us, then this series will not disappoint.

The author should have had another narrator.

The narration in this book was less than mediocre. The author just is not a narrator. Her southern accents were jarring to this southern listener. Her British accent completely missed the mark.
The story was almost painfully predictable.

The perfect summer read

This is the third book of the Lowcountry Summer series, I loved the first and second one and this is just as good, its very sweet and beautiful, the author has a very soothing southern accent, it made me feel like it was Mamaw telling the story.
This third book has the same formula than the other two and we get to follow Mamaw a little more.
I really enjoyed it, I think this series it the perfect summer read.
It is a very sweet and clean story, I wish there were more clean stories in this romance package.

great book. a little lacking.

It was okay. a little underwhelming. I would have liked a little more excitement. seemed rushed.
