Still Waters

By Lindsey P. Brackett


Cora Anne Halloway has a history degree and a plan for avoiding her own past—despite being waitlisted for graduate school. Then her beloved grandmother requests, and her dispassionate mother insists, she spend the summer at Still Waters, the family cottage on Edisto Beach.
Despite its picturesque setting, Still Waters haunts her with loss. Here her grandfather died, her parents' marriage disintegrated, and as a child, she caused a tragic drowning. But lingering among the oak canopies and gentle tides, this place also tempts her with forgiveness—especially since Nan hired Tennessee Watson to oversee cottage repairs. A local contractor, but dedicated to the Island's preservation from development, Tennessee offers her friendship and more, if she can move beyond her guilt over his father's death.

Book Takeaway:

Unless we forgive ourselves, we cannot live under the forgiveness of Christ and others.

Why the author wrote this book:

I wanted to write about Edisto because it's a special place, and I wanted to deal with issues of guilt, family obligation, and the lies we tell ourselves.
