On Ocean Boulevard is a literary fiction book by author Mary Alice Monroe.
The gripping novel recounts a family’s summer to forge new beginnings against the enduring beauty and resilience of the natural world.
It’s been 16 years since Caretta “Cara” Rutledge returned home on the beautiful shores of Charleston, South Carolina. During those years, she weathered the tides of death and birth, struggles and joys. And now, as Cara prepares for her second wedding, her life is about to change again.
Meanwhile, the rest of the Rutledge family is also changing. Cara’s niece Linnea returns to Sullivan’s Island to start a new career and an unexpected relationship. Linnea’s parents, after coming out of bankruptcy, put their hopes and future on building a new home on Ocean Avenue. But as excitement about the house and wedding grows, a fatal illness strikes the family and puts the plans on hold. It is in these difficult circumstances that the Rutledge family must unite to discover the enduring power of love, tradition, and legacy from mother to daughter to granddaughter.
A moving story of country love, loyalty and enduring friendship” (Booklist), On Ocean Avenue is Mary Alice Monroe at her best.
Mary Alice Monroe creates characters that interest you and she really brought my attention to my favorite members of the Rutledge family. This story is as gorgeous and lush as its predecessors! And even though it’s part of a series, it stands alone splendidly. (But it would be a shame if you didn’t take the time to read the other books on the way to this latest one!)
