From the time she was twelve, Julie Holt knew what a random tragedy can do to a family. At that tender age, her little sister disappeared-never to be found. It was a loss that slowly eroded the family bonds she once relied on. As an adult with a prestigious job in the arts, Julie meets a struggling artist who reminds her so much of her sister, she can't help feeling protective. It is a friendship that begins a long and painful process of healing for Julie, leading her to a house on the Gulf Coast, ravaged by hurricane Katrina, and to stories of family that take her deep into the past.… (lisätietoja)

Liked the descriptions of Biloxi and New Orleans and the destruction that occurred from hurricanes along with the reasons for rebuilding. Can not believe that Monica left her family for the reason given and that she never told more about her relationship to Julie. The times when the grandmother is telling about her past were the most interesting, especially about her feelings for the two very different brothers and was glad with who she married. A bit unbelievable at how obsessed Julie became with finding out about the past for both her lost sister and the mystery of Monica. ( )

This was a wonderful book! I would highly recommend it. It is set in New Orleans and Biloxi, Mississippi post Hurricane Katrina. The book is about a woman who goes down to New Orleans after her friend dies and she becomes guardian of her friend's 5 year old son. It is a book about looking forward and rebuilding lives. It is also a book about loss. When Julie, the main character was 12 years old, her sister was kidnapped and never found. She has spent most of her life looking for her sister. Julie cannot understand the need to rebuild when there has been so much loss.

The author touches on the devastation of Hurricane Katrina as background to help move the story. The book really helps me understand the resilience of the people of New Orleans and the surrounding areas.

I absolutely loved the book! ( )

This was the "Book of the Month" back in November at my local library. It's a very intriguing book. Full of mystery and questions about the past. The what's, where's, when's, who's, how's and why's. Its effects on the present day can be felt very strongly. Very strong characters, very descriptive, and very insightful.

Not everyone chooses to rebuild their lives in an area that was just wreaked with havoc by a natural disaster. You have to be strong and willful to endure the damage and let it go. It takes a special strength to see the beauty in the midst of all that wreckage. In a place so full of debris, people still see treasures: their memories, their past, and dreams for the future. Aimee, Trey, Julie, and Xavier show us that life still goes on, whether or not we're ready for it. ( )

After 3 weeks of reading, I finally finished The Beach Trees by Karen White. It wasn't that it was a boring book (I actually liked it, I was just so busy with the holidays and work. I do not recommend taking that long to read this book. I think, no, I know, I would have enjoyed it more if I could have finished it in 2 or 3 days. There were lots of characters in this book (relations) and I had to stop and think who everyone was. It would have been great if the author had included a family tree at the beginning to help people (like me out). LOL

Quick summary: This book is told by 2 people and goes back and forth in time. I actually liked the back story better than the present story.as it flowed better. Monica leaves home (the reason given in the book is very weak) and befriends Julie . We learn that there was a reason for the friendship. Monica dies giving guardianship of her son Beau and half ownership of River Song, a family beach house. Julie takes Beau to Biloxi, Mississippi to see River Song. Unfortunately, River Song has been damaged by Hurricane Katrina.

The author does a amazing job weaving the two stories into one. There is Julie's story (present day) and Aimee's story who was Monica's grandmother. Truths, lies, betrayal are all brought out in the storylines. ( )
