“Mary Alice Monroe has become the premier nature writer among Southern novelists.”


New York Times
bestselling author Pat Conroy

Praise for the Lowcountry Summer Series

The Summer’s End

“It is hard to describe the beauty of Monroe’s work. The words on the pages flow from the author’s eyes to create a world of rare enchantment. Next, Monroe’s brain assembles a plot that moves the characters from one amazing event to another. Then from Monroe’s heart comes the passion for the story, one that is rich with love and depth.”


The Huffington Post

“To describe Monroe’s books is like trying to describe the Lowcountry itself. There is warmth and beauty found on every page, and it is simple yet complex in its nature. Storms may rage in the night, but morning always follows.”


Myrtle Beach Online

“If you are searching for a great beach read—friendship, family, a touch of ecology, and romance—well, then, this is the book for you. . . . Keep tissues by your side as you read this book.”

—Joan Leotta

“Mary Alice Monroe is an exquisite author who blends the magnificent Lowcountry setting with human emotions. . . . This is a must-read for fans of Southern literature.”


Ariesgrl Reviews

The Summer Wind

“Distinct, complex, and endearing characters . . . Mary Alice Monroe continues to make Charleston proud with her authentic and purposeful writings.”


Charleston Magazine

“Monroe’s vivid imagery of the Lowcountry’s smells, tastes, and sights brings you up to the door of the Sea Breeze, so even if you’re at home far from the ocean, you can imagine yourself there.”


The Herald-Sun

“Monroe deftly explores the unique problems each woman faces. . . . These are modern women addressing the prickly questions of identity and purpose in today’s world, a world very different from the one their grandmother knew as a young bride. . . . Written with convincing Southern charm and thoughtfulness,
The Summer Wind
explores the bonds of sisterhood and the challenges of modern womanhood with warmth and genuine affection.”


BookPage

“A series I urge everyone to get into, it makes the perfect beach read and I know you will be fully invested in this family as much as I am.”


A Southern Girls Bookshelf

“The second book in the Lowcountry Summer Trilogy,
The Summer Wind
 . . . pulls at your heartstrings even more than the first.”


Posting for Now

“The perfect summertime beach read. And even after the summer season is long gone, you can pick it up and be back at the beach in no time flat.”


Maurice on Books

The Summer Girls

“Monroe knows her characters like no one else could, and her portrayals of the summer girls are subtle, realistic, carefully crafted, and pitch-perfect.”


Publishers Weekly

“This book contains drama, humor, and romance, which any good summer read does. Plus it has the message about the care and treatment of dolphins. Monroe is an expert at making this blend and
The Summer Girls
is one of her most successful efforts.”


The Huffington Post

“Mary Alice Monroe at her best . . .
The Summer Girls
reminded me of what I love about Southern fiction.”


Heroes and Heartbreakers

“A captivating story of how the ocean and a charismatic dolphin reunite sisters in the alluring ecological setting of the Lowcountry of South Carolina. The story resonates on a personal level and, moreover, delivers a powerful reminder of the importance of protecting dolphins and the environment in which they live.”

—Patricia Fair, Director, Marine Mammal Program, NOAA
