Luanne Rice, like Anne Rivers Siddons, has an uncanny ability to convey a family's sweetest joys and its darkest secrets. Firefly Beach is a poignant story of two people struggling to move beyond the tragedy that links their lives. As a child, Caroline Renwick watches, horrified, while a desperate man kills himself. After she learns that the man has a young son, Joe, Caroline begins writing to him, and they become close pen pals. But several years later, when Joe is told the reason for his father's death, he turns away from her. Now, meeting as adults at Caroline's ancestral home, they have a chance to confront and heal that old wound. But what will be the emotional cost? Set on the picturesque New England coast, Firefly Beach captures the magic of a summer that changes a woman and her family forever. Narrator Alexandra O'Karma infuses this novel with a special glow, enhancing each fateful mood and moment.

Professional reviews

"As a young child, Caroline Renwick watched as her friend Joe's father took his life in her family's kitchen. Now an inn proprietor, she is haunted her own family problems and the disintegration of the close friendship she and Joe enjoyed as teenagers. When Joe comes to dive a wreck near her inn, they must face their pasts and try to craft a future. Alexandra O'Karma's narration accurately conveys both self-involved characters and those more emotionally present. She is always on the mark in capturing the emotional core and vocal individuality of each character. M.A.M. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
