The Beach Trees

The Beach Trees
by Karen White

If you have ever visited New Orleans or the Gulf Coast, the vivid imagery in the pages of Karen White's newest book will take you back. The storyline is told by the two female characters, Aimee from the 1950s and Julie from the present, and is the story of their search for the same woman who does not want to be found. With the backdrop of pre-Camille Biloxi and post-Katrina New Orleans, it is a story of a mysterious painting, an orphaned four-year-old boy, a destroyed Biloxi beach house, and people who optimistically rebuild in the face of great tragedy. A good summer read.
