"The beach house carried some kind of spell, concocted of--I don't know--salt air, sea grass and Old Bay seasoning that over the years had permeated its walls and floorboards. Whatever it was, the place cast fabulous magic."
Award-winning author Toby Devens discusses her newest novel Barefoot Beach, set in a Maryland resort town where all is not sun, silky sand, and calm seas. A gathering of three women for their annual beach retreat is interrupted by personal challenges and family dynamics, and strengthened by powerful bonds of female friendship. "This...will make you laugh and root for the possibility of a second chance at love." ~Southern Girls Bookshelf
Known for her women;s fiction, Devens is the author of Happy Any Day Now and My Favorite Midlife Crisis (Yet). Her short fiction, poetry and articles have appeared in Readers' Digest and Parents, among other national magazines.
