Item Description...
DeVeaux DeLoach enjoys her privileged life on her family's 150-year-old Edisto Island plantation. But her world turns upside down when her daddy declares bankruptcy and sells their home. Now her family lives in the caretaker's cottage and works for the new Japanese owners. Can her stubborn faith give her hurting family hope for the future? A sensitive coming-of-age tale set amidst the beautiful low country. 320 pages, softcover from WestBow.

Publishers Description
"Beth Webb Hart shares her knowledge of the lowcountry] with skill, wisdom, and beauty."

- Pat Conroy, author of "The Prince of Tides"

When a business venture goes sour, Charleston blue-bloods Billy and Dee DeLoach uproot their family and move into the caretaker's cottage on what was once the family plantation estate on Edisto Island. While the rest of her family falls to pieces, DeVeaux struggles to sustain them through her reluctant help and her stubborn hope.

Before the bankruptcy, the family had a graceful home in a historic Charleston neighborhood. Country clubs, cotillions, childhood friends, and a close-knit church group. Now they're living in a run-down cottage on an island estate that is no longer in the family. DeVeaux has a restaurant job, a cantankerous old truck, and mud on just about everything.

But something is wearing DeVeaux down. It's not living on the island, which is actually kind of interesting. And it's not missing her old friends, who have developed an annoying fixation on boys. What really bothers DeVeaux is that being "ruined" has changed her dad into an ill-tempered jerk, and her mother just tiptoes around him. If the good Lord has a plan for saving them, now might be a good time to start.

A gritty but gentle drawl of a story, Grace at Low Tide is a tender and evocative portrait of a young girl embracing womanhood. With southern society as her backdrop, Beth Webb Hart paints for us a hard-luck family scrabbling to find its heart again. It is a testimony to the small miracles of love and loyalty--the gifts of grace that manage to keep us all afloat, even at our lowest ebb.

"a lovely, gifted writer."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not what I expected  May 28, 2008
I didn't like this book very much but I really like Beth Webb Hart and loved "The Wedding Machine". That was a good book that I enjoyed very much. Not for the teen table at all. Sometimes I think that Beth Webb Hart has seen a lot in her life and has taken note of it all. I look forward to reading more of her books even though this one wasn't one of my favorites, I still enjoy her insights. In a way she reminds me of John D. MacDonald who muses about the human condition and assures us that we all have thoughts that frustrate us whether it's over ruthless development of a beautiful land or of how society is so much more crass than ever before. BTW MacDonald's books are NOT Christian lit so just wanted to warn you there. But his sensitivities are about the same as far as the land and the human condition aside from the fact that Beth Webb Hart's focus of hope is in God (which is a huge difference).
A Tender Coming-of-Age Story  Sep 30, 2007
Fifteen-year-old DeVeaux is faced with choices and changes when her father, a formerly affluent and respected Charleston resident, goes bankrupt and moves the family to a much more isolated and much less refined life an on island nearby. DeVeaux, the youngest of the family, deals with her father's breakdown, her mother's illness, and her older siblings' and cousin's troubles, as well as her own relationship and friendship intricacies.

The story is understated, peaceful, intimate. You feel as though you're sitting on the front porch swing with DeVeaux as she relates the saga of the past six months to you. It avoids cliches without being overly cynical. And in my opinion, it is more well-written than many other contemporary Christian novels.
Not bad  May 20, 2007
The writing is strong, but I felt the story was a bit too contrived and predictable. The setting and dialog are pretty strong, and the plot itself has a good premise. I did believe the narration was nicely done, but the book as a whole just didn't grab me. I didn't really get pulled in and found myself skipping many pages. I basically read it in about 2 hours and nothing in the book made me stop and re-read due its sheer beauty. It is one of the better Christian fiction books I've read. I hope the Christian market continues to opt for substance and good writing. Grace at Low Tide has a nice flow, just didn't really move me.
new literary voice  Dec 10, 2006
I love this book. It has now become one of my favorite books.
Devaux Deloach, though wise beyond her years, is a strong character and reminiscent of a character straight out of a Pat Conroy novel. I love the language of the low-country and the descriptions that place the reader right in the pages. This is a novel that sweeps along and never drags. Perfect pitch and poetic. A book to be cherished along with all contemporary Southern lit.
Sip a cup of tea and enjoy this book.  Dec 29, 2005
This book has depth and is one of those to be savored. Read it
slowly to take in the lush southern setting and experience the
pains of a young girl growing up in a family situation that forces her to be wise beyond her years.
