With a warm voice that brings the South to life, New York Times best-selling author Mary Alice Monroe writes richly textured novels that intimately portray the complex and emotional relationships shared among family, friends, and the natural world.

Here, in Last Light Over Carolina, Monroe tells the haunting and touching story of a longtime shrimp boat captain and his wife of 30 years on the day he is injured at sea.

On an otherwise ordinary day, in a small shrimping village off the coast of South Carolina, a boat goes missing. The entire town rallies as all are mobilized to find the lost vessel. Throughout the course of one day, flashbacks of Bud Morrison, the captain on board, and Carolina, his wife, reveal the happier days of a once-thriving shrimping industry juxtaposed with the memories of their long term marriage.

Through her wonderfully evocative storytelling and keen insights into the human heart, Mary Alice Monroe has yet again delivered an exceptional and engaging work of fiction. Download and start listening now!

    " A shrimper's family dealing with the extinction of their way of life (don't buy imported shrimp--or cars, or light bulbs, eh?) Well-developed, gently written, and well-plotted, this is not a rant or a melodrama constructed to incite the reader; it merely tells an involving story--it's a "good read." "
