With a warm voice that brings the South to life, New York
Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe writes richly
textured novels that intimately portray the complex and
emotional relationships shared among family, friends, and
the natural world. Here, in Last Light Over Carolina,
Monroe tells the haunting and touching story of a longtime
shrimp boat captain and his wife of thirty years the day he
is injured at sea.
On an otherwise ordinary day, in a
small shrimping village off the coast of South Carolina, a
boat goes missing. The entire town rallies as all are
mobilized to find the lost vessel. Throughout the course of
one day, flashbacks of Bud Morrison, the captain on board,
and Carolina, his wife, reveal the happier days of a
once-thriving shrimping industry juxtaposed with the
memories of their long term marriage.
wonderfully evocative storytelling and keen insights into
the human heart, Mary Alice Monroe has yet again delivered
an exceptional and engaging work of fiction.
