Three sisters reunite on Sullivan’s Island off the coast of South Carolina after years of separation in this heartwarming first novel in a new trilogy from a beloved author.

Eighty-year-old Marietta Muir is a dowager of Charleston society who has retired to her historic summer home on Sullivan’s Island. At the onset of summer, Marietta, “Mamaw,” seeks to gather her three granddaughters—Carson, Eudora, and Harper—with the intent to reunite them after years apart. Monroe explores the depths and complexities of sisterhood, friendship, and the power of forgiveness. The Summer Girls is a perfect beach read and anyone who “enjoys such fine Southern voices as Pat Conroy will add the talented Monroe to their list of favorites” (Booklist).

Quotes & Awards

  • “Magical! Mary Alice Monroe’s writing is always sensitive and true and as inspiring as the natural wonder about which she writes. This luminous tale—set in the South Carolina Lowcountry that we both love so deeply—was hard to put down.”

    Dorothea Benton Frank, New York Times bestselling author

  • The Summer Girls is more than just a beautifully written, moving portrayal of three sisters finding themselves and each other after years of separation. It’s also an important book that deals head-on with significant issues so skillfully woven into the narrative that I often stopped to consider the import of what I’d just read. If you’re a dedicated environmentalist, this book is a must-read. If you’re just someone who enjoys a good story, you’ll get that, too, and much more.”

    Cassandra King, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Monroe’s resplendent storytelling shines even brighter…[with] startling insights into the intimate connection between nature and the human heart.”

    Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Mary Alice Monroe has taken the rich waters of the Atlantic Coast as her own field of dreams. In The Summer Girls, she sings a song of praise to the bottle-nosed dolphins that bring so much joy to the men and women who gaze at the creeks and rivers of the low country each evening. Like all her books, The Summer Girls is a call to arms.”

    Pat Conroy, New York Times bestselling author
