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.
"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."
