ABOUT THE BOOK

Nothing could be more enchanting than a summer wedding—or two!—in Charleston’s fabled lowcountry. A centuries-old plantation, an avenue of ancient oaks dripping moss, a storied ballroom, a sand dune at sunset. Yet when a stranger arrives, a long held family secret could silence the bells ringing for the Muir sisters. Scandals surface, family bonds are questioned, and promises are broken and renewed. A Lowcountry Wedding delves into the heart of marriage, commitment, and family ties.

Mary Alice, who is an active conservationist, continues her powerful environmental message in the Lowcountry Summer Series about the Atlantic bottlenose dolphin; nearly half of the resident species in South Carolina is ill. Monroe is a New York Times bestselling and award-winning author, and long-time supporter of LILA. Her novel, The Beach House will be adapted into a Hallmark Channel Original Movie, starring three-time Golden Globe nominee Andie MacDowell. Filming is set to begin summer 2016.
