Event description
Mary Alice Monroe Debuts Her Newest Novel, On Ocean Boulevard

About this Event

Spend a Sunday afternoon with New York Times Best-Selling Author Mary Alice Monroe, award-winning master storyteller and coastal conservationist, at Bodacious Bookstore and Cafe! She'll debut her upcoming novel, On Ocean Boulevard, a beautiful book that parallels the nesting of sea turtles with the importance of family and home among the Rutledge family, characters made famous in Monroe's popular Beach House series.

We're sure to fill up quickly before this May special Sunday, so reserve your seats and signed copies of her new book now!

Monroe, a prestigious award-winning novelist, writes richly textured books that delve into the complexities of interpersonal relationships and the parallels between the land and life. Her work is deeply inspired by the flora, fauna, and famous (and infamous characters) of the Carolinas and our Southern coasts.

About the Book

It’s been sixteen years since Caretta “Cara” Rutledge has returned home to the beautiful shores of Charleston, South Carolina. Over those years, she has weathered the tides of deaths and births, struggles and joys. And now, as Cara prepares for her second wedding, her life is about to change yet again.

Meanwhile, the rest of the storied Rutledge family is also in flux. Cara’s niece Linnea returns to Sullivan’s Island to begin a new career and an unexpected relationship. Linnea’s parents, having survived bankruptcy, pin their hopes and futures on the construction of a new home on Ocean Boulevard. But as excitement over the house and wedding builds, a devastating illness strikes the family and brings plans to a screeching halt. It is under these trying circumstances that the Rutledge family must come together yet again to discover the enduring strength in love, tradition, and legacy from mother to daughter to granddaughter.

Like the sea turtles that come ashore annually on these windswept islands, three generations of the Rutledge family experience a season of return, rebirth, and growth. “Authentic, generous, and heartfelt” (Mary Kay Andrews, New York Times bestselling author), On Ocean Boulevard is Mary Alice Monroe at her very best.
