By: LPC Books
Still Waters is a Lowcountry story about the power of family and forgiveness, Still Waters is Brackett's debut novel. Editors were Eva Marie Everson and Jennifer Slattery.
From the publisher:
When her beloved grandmother requests one last summer at Still Waters, the family cottage on Edisto Beach, Cora Anne Halloway returns to a place that haunts her with loss and tempts her with forgiveness.
Peace means reconciling her family and her Edisto memories. But acceptance may mean loving the man determined to preserve a past she'd rather forget.
