Description

Reeling from accusations of professional incompetence, high school counselor Kathlyn Murray takes refuge in her uncle's cabin on Sandshell Island. Instead of finding solace, Kathlyn is confronted by islanders who resent her intrusion, as they struggle to keep their treasured lifestyle safe from the surge of mainlanders. Desperate to stay, Kathlyn puts her counseling skills to the test, fighting to overcome cultural prejudice. When a young girl befriends Kathlyn seeking advice for her future, Kathlyn recognizes the short supply of prosperous jobs on the island for young people. She seizes the opportunity to help and proposes a new initiative for kids to intern at local businesses. Her outspoken idealism sparks controversy amongst the islanders. While most young people are thrilled with her ideas, the entrenched residents ostracize her for butting into island affairs. The tides begin to turn when Kathlyn strikes up a friendship with the local attorney and wins his support. Despite his influence, Kathlyn endures a scathing personal defilement during a town meeting. Before it's over, she must face her past and open her heart to the people who judge her. Only when Kathlyn confronts her fears and her scars can she find true peace. "Sandshell Island by Pamela Raleigh is a breath of fresh air. Having lived on an island for seven years, I was curious to see how the author would portray island life. Raleigh nails it. With keen insight and local color, the author braids together a tapestry of connected lives on an island off the coast of Florida. She captures the monumental challenge of an "outsider" trying to integrate into a small, tight knit, island community. Rich in character and local color, this heartwarming novel celebrates the geography of community, the human need to belong, and the strength of our bonds. I found Sandshell Island both entertaining and refreshing. I loved the cast of colorful characters. Sandshell Island is a heartwarming tale about the power of community, the connections we make, and the need to belong.--Dana Ridenour, award-winning author of Behind The Mask, Beyond The Cabin and Below The Radar. "Pamela Raleigh is a gifted storyteller possessed of an engaging, authentic voice and captivating style. In Sandshell Island, the indefatigable Kathlyn Murray's story unfolds organically - even inevitably, - like gentle Gulf waves on warm white sand. But watch out! powerful undercurrents are at play just beneath the surface, and are sure to sweep you away. A great read!"--Celeste Davidson, Creative Director, JoinOurStory.com In a low voice, Sarge said, "You get one thing clear, Missy. You might be new to the island, but you are NOT going to change this place. I don't know why you want to live here, but if you think it's to change the island into something it's not, you're mistaken. No one knows what you're up to, but we know it's no good. I don't know what you did before you came here, but you sure as hell aren't gonna destroy our island and our families." With that he turned on his heel leaving Kathlyn slack-jawed and Mr. Lovell looking at the ground, anywhere else but at her. At the door he turned back around. "I don't even blame them kids for trying to get you out of here. Maybe you should listen and go back where you belong! You don't belong here ... EVER!"
