in grief and shock at the grave of her young husband, Claire Avery
wonders what she and her young daughters will do now. They live in
the church parsonage they need to vacate. She hasn’t worked since her
marriage twelve years ago. Old issues and complications hinder
relationships with her family. Struggling for answers, Claire accepts
her brother-in-law’s offer to stay at his beach house at Edisto to
give her a season to heal and think. But even the peace and beauty of
the coastal island bring new problems along with unexpected joys as
Claire seeks to find her way.
Avery always promised his brother Charles he would look after Claire
if anything happened to him. Charles stood by him three years ago
when his wife Ann died and Parker is determined now to be a help to
Claire and the girls. As time passes, instead of feeling like a hero,
he feels like a heel instead as he realizes he’s developing feelings
for his own brother’s widow. To make things worse, he watches with
pain and jealousy as Miles Lawrence waltzes into Claire’s life. What
can he expect though? It hardly seems right that Claire, even after a
season of mourning, would ever fall in love with her own

loved and lost her.
was a long trip back to Edisto Island, South Carolina, and the beach
house that shaped so much of Mary Helen Avery’s early life. Now her
mind flashed between anger and hurt over the difficult situation
she’d left behind at the job she loved. Was she doing the
right thing to leave? Should she have stayed to fight? She hoped at
the quiet, beloved island she knew so well, she’d find the answers
she needed and peace from all this turmoil.
heart took a familiar lurch when he saw the car with New Jersey
plates parked at the Avery’s beach house. Even after ten years, the
memory of Mary Helen Avery still tormented him. Finding her on
the porch weeping lit old fires he thought long dead. Was he a fool
to hope for something more between them with all their problems of
the past? Probably so, but if she stayed long enough, he’d find one
more chance to try.
EDISTO SONG a young woman, at the pinnacle of success, is forced to
reexamine her dreams as she finds her life as a concert pianist not
what she envisioned and those her life is entwined with far from what
she believed of them.
Katherine Avery, becoming internationally known as a young concert
pianist of great promise, finds herself at a difficult moment in her
career-home in New York, getting ready for a concert with the New
York Philharmonic Orchestra but feverish and ill. After pushing
on for weeks through illness, her neighbor and friend encourages her
to talk to her agent about taking a break for healing after this
concert. Worn and disillusioned, Sarah heads over to the concert hall
to talk to Jonah but the shock of what she encounters at that meeting
spirals her life in a new direction.
Cavanaugh has traveled to New York from Beaufort to be a support to
his boss’s daughter, Sarah Katherine Avery-Suki to him-for her
concert performance. A friend of Suki’s since childhood years at
Edisto, and always a supporter of her gift and her music, Andrew is
shocked when Suki collapses on stage. He learns as he sits with her
at the hospital that her life holds unhappiness none of them knew of
but her answers for how to resolve her current problems threaten to
send his well-ordered life right out the window.
